David J with Jill Tracy

As promised, former Bauhaus bassist David J released his “exquisite new cinematic interpretation” of the band’s iconic song “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” at 1 minute past midnight today, marking Halloween with his new 12-minute “Undead is Forever” remake that features piano work by Jill Tracy and an excerpt of Lord Byron’s vampire poem “The Giaour.”

The track — which also features “Ysanne Spevack on eerie antique autoharp, banshee violin and ‘bride of Dracula’ backing vocals, Kenny Annis on seismic rumbling contrabass and Randy Odell on ghost whisperer drums, this dark melancholic exploration was recorded live by candlelight in a single take” — can be streamed below and is also available to buy on Bandcamp.
