Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds released their most recent album, Push The Sky Away, back in 2013, and Pitchfork reports that its follow-up is due out in September. The Laemmle Theatres website lists an untitled film set to screen on 9/8 that features Cave and the band performing songs off of a new album:
This is, first and foremost, a performance film of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds performing songs from their new album. The record has an intimacy and starkness that the film’s photographic style will reflect. It will be shot in black and white, color and 3-D. The idea is to create an experience that is immersive but also elegant, that feels both immediate and archival.
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ new album will be released at midnight into 9th September 2016, with the film making its premiere on 8th September. Contrary to usual practice, none of the tracks from the album will be serviced to media or released as singles ahead of its release date, thus making the screening of the film the first medium through which anyone anywhere will be able to hear & experience the songs.
No word yet on the album’s title.
