Hello. I've never posted here before, although I've been lurking for a while.

According to this, the video premiered on October 12 (the single had been released a month earlier, September 12):

It makes sense, because the video was filmed in September, after the band returned from the European tour (and Izzy was MIA).
EDIT: Correction: the video, at least part of it, was filmed in July.

Blackstar, thanks! Now we're finally on to something.
Could you please post a direct link or a full screen capture?

I don't think I can post a direct link because it's a subscribers only site.

Here is the full page of the newspaper - also the page of another newspaper, same date:

Thanks alot and welcome to the forum!

So we were both right...single in September, video in October. I had a feeling I was hearing that already as the albums were about to launch. Id still swear I saw that video earlier but facts don't lie. Memories work in mysterious ways.

Is this a lawyer working on a court case? Somebody murdered the day the video came out but nobody could pinpoint the exact day to put the murderer at the scene?

I'm guessing MTV might have done one of those "World Premiere Video" rollouts even one or two days before other media outlets, so do pursue the suggestion James made, to confirm when it first aired on the station.

Thank you. I was confident I had heard the song before the album was released, too, but I didn't remember specifically about the video - although it would make sense that they were released simultaneously.

And as it turns out, the video eventually premiered (exclusively on MTV) even later:

Oh well, there is a plot twist. I looked in Billboard for further confirmation, and the video didn't premiere on October 12 as scheduled, but on October 20 (probably because it wasn't ready):
