Vagabond Songs is David J's new limited edition gatefold double vinyl LP set. David J's (Love and Rockets / Bauhaus / The Jazz Butcher) ninth studio album Vagabond Songs features a disarmingly charming and heart-felt collection of acoustic songs written on the road and inspired by people and places encountered by David J as he ventured on his ramblin' vagabond way around the world.
Includes the UK hit single, "The Day That David Bowie Died" as well as a radical reworking of the Love and Rockets' classic, "The Dog End of a Day Gone By".
Double LP released on Last Hurray Records.
