Peter Murphy today debuted the first single off his upcoming 10th solo album Lion, a record produced by bassist Youth of Killing Joke that finds the former Bauhaus frontman delving, perhaps not surprisingly, into heavier sounds than he explored on 2011′s Ninth. Below, you can experience “Hang Up” via its music video, which premiered today at The AV Club.
Lions is due out June 3, and is preceded by a limited-edition metallic-silver 7-inch single featuring a dub mix of the song that will be released April 19 as part of Record Store Day.
Murphy also embarks on a 33-date North American tour on May 22.
