Grinderman Heathen Child 2010

“Heathen Child” is the sweaty fourth single from Grinderman’s forthcoming sophomore album, Grinderman 2. In addition to this bluesy thumb-sucking album version, you’ll find a limited-edition Kanye-approved 12″ with “Super Heathen Child,” a rendition that includes a guitar solo from King Crimson ace Robert Fripp. I can only imagine how his solo compliments Nick Cave’s intellectually lascivious (and just plain ’ol lusty) bathtub sermonizing. (Also: The single art’s worth a curious eyeballing.)

Grinderman 2 is out 9/13 in Europe via Mute and 9/14 in the U.S. via Anti-. The 12″ single’s out 9/6.

  1. I love the nasty wailing big muff guitar tone. Amazing use of effects. But my favorite thing about this song is the space. And, naturally, the lyrics.

    You think your great big
    Husband will protect you.
    YOU ARE WRONG.

    Jesus Nick Cave is cool.
