More than a year after the death of former Japan bassist Mick Karn, fans finally will get a chance to hear the ‘Dalis Car’ EP he recorded with Peter Murphy in the fall of 2010, a five-track collection that represents the briefly reunited duo’s first work together since their lone album, ‘The Waking Hour,’ came out in 1984.

Peter Murphy embarks on another U.S. tour on Thursday, and in advance of that, he spoke to Slicing Up Eyeballs about the making of ‘Ninth,’ how that record drew inspiration from the Bauhaus reunion album ‘Go Away White’ and how he re-teamed with Mick Karn to make a new Dalis Car EP prior to the bassist’s death.
The briefly reunited Dalis Car — Peter 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 second and final release by Dalis Car — recorded by Peter Murphy and a dying Mick Karn last fall — will be a five-track EP titled ‘InGladAloneness’ and out as early as next month.
