]“Not Long For This World is a collection of eulogies, elegies, epitaphs and swan songs for lost loves, the dear departed and future departees including, inevitably, one’s self. Let’s now dance whilst the candle still burns bright!” – David J

Former Bauhaus and Love & Rockets bassist/vocalist DAVID J needs little introduction. DAVID is now spanning his fifth decade in music with his new album NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD, due out October 18 via Starry Records. Marking his eighth  album as a solo artist and first proper solo album since 2003, the disc continues his long tradition of making music that pushes the boundaries of the musical status quo, as well as his personal musical envelope. Smashing Pumpkins mastermind William Patrick Corgan will be partnering with Kerry Brown and Starry Records, alongside St. Rose Records, to release the album. David’s work has been influential and inspiring to both Billy and Kerry’s careers, and they are elated to be releasing this album.

“I grew up in awe of David J’s band Bauhaus for their unique approach to music,” says Corgan,  “and like all great artists, David J in his own right has never stopped pushing forward. His ever-curious creativity, collaborative spirit, and openness to new media are an inspiration, and I’m proud to help release his new album.”

DAVID’s multi-dimensional career began with seminal goth legends Bauhaus. Since Bauhaus disbanded, DAVID has released seven albums with Love & Rockets, seven solo albums, and several solo EPs, as well as collaborations and session appearances with the likes of Jane’s Addiction, Genesis P. Orridge, Jarboe, author Alan Moore, and actress Fairuza Balk. NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD–a rich gothic cabaret-inspired album–is evidence of a deep maturation, sure to attract old fans and new.
