It has been quite a while since we last heard new music from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Specifically, since 2013’s ‘Push The Sky Away’, but that time comes to an end this September with a new project; a project based on a less than ordinary idea: to premiere a new album in the form of a concert film screening.

A film event posted on Los Angeles art house chain Laemmle Theatre’s website let us know that: “Nick Cave &The Bad Seeds’ new album will be released at midnight into 9th September 2016, with the film making its premiere on 8th September” and that “contrary to usual practice”, no tracks will be pre-released to media or as singles”. The album is still untitled and the event makes it clear that the film screening will be the first time “anyone anywhere will be able to hear and experience the songs”.  One more thing that needs to be said is that, according to aforementioned post, the choice in filming style reflects the “intimacy and starkness” present on the mysterious new record.

Doesn’t it all sound very exciting? Maybe more is on the way and we will definitely keep you posted!

In the meantime, let’s remember the title song from their latest, so far, work. Here is ‘Push The Sky Away‘.
