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.
