Click to listen to Peter Murphy's 'Gaslit'

The moody, richly atmospheric "Gaslit" is the opening track on The Secret Bees of Ninth, an EP collecting b-sides and outtakes from Peter Murphy's most recent solo album, Ninth. The former Bauhaus frontman is as dark and intense as ever on the track, which is just as strong as anything on Ninth. The Secret Bees of Ninth is in stores now, but you can download "Gaslit" for free here.
