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.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
