Video: Peter Murphy, ‘I Spit Roses’

After much build-up, the official video for “I Spit Roses” — the lead-off single from Peter Murphy’s new album Ninth (you can stream the whole thing here) — premiered today. And, as promised, the heavily imagined and effect-heavy clip by director Justin Coloma finds the former Bauhaus singer — who’s done time as and-screen vampire — made up like some sort of pirate as he makes his way through the nautically themed story. Check it out above.

  • What a nice surprise to wake up to! Not only is the song and the album superb, but this video is beyond what I expected. After watching the preview clips last week, with him in front of those green screens, i never would’ve thought that the animation would be that spectacular. Just beautiful. :)

  • wow! really nice! i have no idea what the video was depicting but it’s really really cool. good to see real videos making a bit of a comeback.

  • It looks like a clip from Yo Gabba Gabba, which is not a put-down.

  • Loved the video, and have been very pleasantly surprised by the album…kudos to Peter for the nice work!

    Cool video. I am impressed with the whole nautical theme. Best album since “Holy Smoke.” Would like to see Peter live at Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa on the 26th of June.

  • Last Album I bought was Holy Smoke. And last song I liked was “Fall with your knife”. This is a sweet video, but the song doesn’t give any kick. I will always love me some Peter Murphy though.
