Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have shared the new spoken-word video for “Steve McQueen“.
The visuals in the clip are taken from the recent film One More Time With Feeling, which documented Cave and his band recording their sixteenth album, Skeleton Tree.
Directed by Andrew Dominik, the footage sees Cave and his band rehearsing “Girl In Amber” in the studio as the frontman recites his moving “Steve McQueen” poem.
“I’m a housefly called ‘God,’ and I don’t give a fuck/ Here I come up the elevator, 60 floors, hoping I don’t get stuck/ And everyone out here does mean, and everyone out here does pain/ But someone’s got to sing new stars, and someone’s got to sing the rain.”
