“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.
