A little more research on Jacqueline Humphries reveals her to be an artist involved in the New York scene. There are a few photographs of her out there. Though six years old I think this is the best face shot I've found:

While not ready to say it definitely is her, there is nothing about this photograph that leads me to dismiss her as a strong possibility.

It looks like her. Watch the final few seconds: 

In other news, Tony Visconti says the album is a lot rockier, and he was surprised that this was the first single. I'm glad to hear that. The drums on the new song are very Low-like too, I noticed.

Still not sure about the album artwork though. Here's an interesting interview with the designer: http://virusfonts.com/news/201.....er-design/

The Sun newspaper reports that it is indeed Jacqueline Humphries.

If folks havent seen it the cover of the new album is

which is the Heroes cover (seen below) with the word Heros scored out at the top and a white square box pasted over his face and the words 'The Next Day' written in. I think its quite cool.

Ah! Good spot. Yes, Song Of Norway probably refers to Hermione Farthingale, for whom he wrote Letter To Hermione on the Space Oddity album. I didn't know there was a film of that name.

All this nostalgia does make me wonder if this is a farewell. I do hope not. It sort of reminds me of the last stuff Queen put out when they knew Freddie was dying (These Are The Days Of Our Lives, Show Must Go On). Then again, Bowie's referenced his past work before (eg Ashes To Ashes).
