Bauhaus have shared a new song, “Drink the New Wine.” It is the band’s first new song in 14 years. Listen below.

The lineup as ever features Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins, and David J. The band recorded the song last year via the Surrealists’ “Exquisite Corpse” technique, in which each artist adds to the piece without seeing what the others have done.

This technique also inspired the song’s title, as a press release explains in more detail: “The title refers to the very first ‘Cadavre exquis’ drawing rendered by André Breton, Marcel Duchamp, Jacques Prévert and Yves Tanguy which included words which when strung together made up the sentence, ‘Le cadavre exquis boiara le vin nouveau’ (‘The exquisite corpse will drink the new wine.’)”

In 2018, Bauhaus shared the B-sides compilation The Bela Session.
