Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have announced a new album, Skeleton Tree. The record is due out September 9th. It has been three years since the band released Push the Sky Away, their first album to reach the top 30 on U.S. Billboard 200. Skeleton Tree will be Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' 16th studio album.
"The first opportunity anyone will have to hear any of the songs from the album will be to watchOne More Time With Feeling, directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly). The film will screen in more than 650 cinemas across the world on September 8, 2016, immediately prior to the release of Skeleton Tree the following day.
Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds' filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave's intermittent narration and improvised rumination.
Filmed in black-and-white and colour, in both 3D and 2D, the result is stark, fragile and raw, and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness," says the press release that accompanied the album announcement.
