Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds have announced details of their forthcoming album, Skeleton Tree.
The album is released on September 9. It was recorded near Cave’s home in Brighton with further sessions at French studio La Frette.
The tracklisting for Skeleton Tree is:
Rings Of Saturn
Girl In Amber
I Need You
The first opportunity to hear the album will take place on September 8 during screenings of a companion film, One More Time With Feeling.
The film has been directed by Andrew Dominik, who has previously worked with Cave on The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford. Dominik explained,
“When Nick approached me about making a film around the recording and performing of the new Bad Seeds album, I’d been seeing quite a lot of him as we rallied around him and his family at the time of his son’s death. My immediate response was ‘Why do you want to do this?’ Nick told me that he had some things he needed to say, but he didn’t know who to say them to. The idea of a traditional interview, he said, was simply unfeasible but that he felt a need to let the people who cared about his music understand the basic state of things. It seemed to me that he was trapped somewhere and just needed to do something – anything – to at least give the impression of forward movement.”
