With his coast-to-coast U.S. tour now underway, Peter Murphy today released his first new single in more than six years: “I Spit Roses” — which can be streamed below and is a track that will be featured on the former Bauhaus leader’s upcoming album Ninth, which is due out in June.
The single — available digitally via iTunes and other web retailers — is backed by another track off the new album, “The Prince & The Old Lady Shade.” The 11-track album, Murphy’s first since 2004’s Unshattered, originally was expected out last fall. It’s now scheduled to be released June 7 by Nettwerk Music Group (see full tracklist below).
Murphy currently is in the midst of a 29-date U.S. tour that opened March 7 in Seattle and that will take him through the south, including a number of Florida dates, before running up the East Coast and then ending in Chicago on April 10 (see full dates here).
UPDATE: You can now also stream the B-side “The Prince & The Old Lady Shade.”
