New York, NY (Top40 Charts) David J (Bauhaus, Love and Rockets) presents 'The Auteur (Redux / The Starlet's Cut)', a digital-only single featuring actress, activist and writer Rose McGowan. This release serves as a taster for his forthcoming double album 'Missive To An Angel From The Halls Of Infamy And Allure', which is set for release on Glass Modern Records in autumn.

The track features a stellar line up of musicians, including Paul Wallfisch (Swans), Larry
Mullins AKA Toby Dammit (Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds), Sean Eden (Luna) and Emily Jane White (backing vox). The accompanying video was created by Scott Saw of Fuze Studios.

"The original version of 'The Auteur' was released as part of an EP in 2002, an old song that tells a much older story but one which in light of the whole #metoo movement now has an addendum," says David J.

"The most vocal proponent of that righteous call for respect and culpability, Rose McGowan, makes a fitting and emotional appearance on this brand new version's reprise. Rose told me that she related to the lyrics on a very personal level and, because of this, she is also considering recording her own version of the song."

David J has spent the last eight months touring the world with Peter Murphy on the massively successful. Ruby Rising 40 Years of Bauhaus Tour, covering multiple countries across four continents.

David also recently offered two limited edition vinyl releases for Record Store Day: a remastered and expanded version of 'V for Vendetta' in Britain (via Glass Modern) and, in North America, the 'Thoughts and Prayers' 7" single (via Schoolkids Records), performing Emily Jane White's 'Hole in the Middle' as b-side. In autumn of 2018, he also reissued his seminal album 'Crocodile Tears and The Velvet Cosh' and released 'Oracle of the Horizontal' with Duende, both on vinyl via Glass Modern.

'The Auteur (Redux / The Starlet's Cut)' will be released on June 14 across all digital platforms. A two-track version of the single, including the instrumental, is available exclusively via Glass Modern Records'.
