The new album was recorded in Prague, Berlin and Los Angeles as well as Wellingborough, England when J revisited Beck Studios where his former highly influential band, Bauhaus cut their seminal classic, ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ back in 1979. The new album features contributions from Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre), Toby Dammit (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds), Paul Wallfisch (Swans), Sean Eden (Luna), Rose McGowan, Asia Argento, Emily Jane White, Annabel (lee) and the great Czech violinist Karel Holas amongst others. J sees the album as the culmination of 36 years of solo / collaborative work. It is also a ‘coming home’ of sorts as the label behind the release is the London based Glass Modern (the newly reactivated Glass Records) which originally released some of J’s earliest critically acclaimed works.
Last autumn and early 2019 saw David J tour the world with Peter Murphy as a 40th Anniversary Celebration of Bauhaus. From Valparaiso to Auckland, St. Petersburg to California.
