Ninth is the ninth studio album by Peter Murphy. It was released on June 7, 2011 on Nettwerk Records. The first single to be released from the album was "I Spit Roses" coupled with "The Prince & Old Lady Shade", which was released March 22, 2011.
Speaking with the Los Angeles Times about the album, Murphy said "The whole intention was to really reference that spark and crackle of people playing together in a room. It's about time I reclaimed my legacy . . . It's going 'OK, this is how it's done.' You don't have to spend three years and $4 million on an album. Listen to this. It's full of swagger and immediacy." Speaking with Wired News Murphy described the album as "a continuation of the Go Away White trajectory, it has testosterone pouring out of it. At the same time, it's as beautiful as any female siren."
