Former Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy will release his ninth album, the aptly-titled Ninth, on June 7th. Streaming below is the album’s lead single, “I Spit Roses”, which is a goth rock gem dripping with melancholic rhythms and brooding vocals that transplant you back to the late ’70s/early ’80s post-punk Brit pop scene when Murphy was already king.

A long-time member of Beggars Banquet Records, Murphy recently joined the Nettwerk Music Group roster of artists, making Ninth his debut release for the label. It also marks his first studio effort since 2004’s Unshattered.

In addition to preparing for the album release, Murphy is waist-deep into a North American tour, which kicked off in Seattle, WA on March 2nd. A string of dates along the east coast remain, with stops then set for Akron and Detroit before coming to a close in Chicago on April 10th. Tickets for all confirmed dates listed below can be purchased at the official Peter Murphy website.
