Dalis Car releases reworking of ‘Artemis’ off new EP — first new track in 27 years

The briefly reunited Dalis CarPeter Murphy and late Japan bassist Mick Karn — today released its first new music in 27 years in the form of a newly reworked version of the instrumental “Artemis” with new vocals and lyrics by the former Bauhaus singer.

The track, originally recorded for 1984’s The Waking Hour, will appear on the duo’s InGladAloneness EP, recorded last fall in the months before Karn succumbed to cancer. In an interview with The Quietus this week, Murphy says the new five-track EP will be released in October.

The new version of “Artemis” was released today in conjunction with Karn’s birthday; he would have been 53 this past Sunday. The track — which also features additional instrumentation from Karn’s Japan bandmate Steve Jansen and Jakko M. Jakszyk — is being sold through Karn’s online store at

All proceeds will go to his wife and son.
