Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds release new track, Jesus Alone
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds reveal new single, ‘Jesus Alone’ - the first track from new studio album, ‘Skeleton Tree.’
The music video for the track is taken from footage of the band performing the song in the forthcoming feature film, ‘One More Time With Feeling’. Two years after Nick Cave’s cinematic memoir, ‘20,000 Days on Earth’ this new feature has been eagerly anticipated ever since it was announced.
Originally planned as a performance based concept, ‘One More Time With Feeling’ evolved into something much more significant as the film delves into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of ‘Skeleton Tree’. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performances of the new album are interviews and intimate footage of the recording process accompanied by Cave’s intermittent narration and improvised ruminations.
‘One More Time with Feeling’ is directed by, Andrew Dominik who worked with Cave on the film, ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’. The film was originally intended as a one night only event to be screened globally 8th September. However, due to overwhelming demand cinemas worldwide have added screenings of the film on the 9th, 10th and 11th of September. The 3D black and white feature film has been officially selected to world premiere at the 2016 Venice Film Festival and will screen in more than 800 cinemas across the world immediately prior to the release of ‘Skeleton Tree’. The new album will be Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' sixteenth studio album and will be available on vinyl, CD and across all digital platforms on 9th September 2016.
