SUN KING PROMO POSTER                            * large UK promo poster

"Sun King" was released on 6 November 1989 as the third single. It reached #39 in the UK charts.

Ian Astbury said regarding this song: "The title was inspired by Louis XIV. I mean they were a pretty decadent lot, used to crap on the floor in Versailles, I think. He'd get a little man to clean it up. The song's just basically a very masculine statement. Very much a he dog song. As I am a man."
