Peter Murphy news

Since I interviewed him for the last CD, I'm really looking forward to the new stuff...

Peter Murphy will release his tenth solo album, Lion, on June 3. Lead single “Hang Up,” as well as the album pre-order, will be available on iTunes starting April 8. On Record Store Day, an exclusive, limited edition 7” single featuring “Hang Up (Dub Mix)” and “I’m On Your Side” will be on sale.

In a recent media interview, Murphy described Lion (produced by Youth of Killing Joke and  The Verve renown), as “a mixture of stuff…almost like operas for the dispossessed. It's very romantic and very deep and emotional, quite symphonic in places, but then becomes, like, a rabble-rousing pirate sea shanty.” 

Murphy spent much of 2013 on the road celebrating 35 of Bauhaus on his Mr. Moonlight Tour. With the upcoming release of Lion, Murphy is ready to turn his attention back to his solo work and will launch a new North American tour starting in May.
