Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds released their emotional wallop of a new album Skeleton Tree last night, and this morning they’ve graced us with the video for the absolutely stunning “I Need You.” I don’t think Cave has ever sounded this shaken before; it’s a real wonder to hear his typically commanding baritone reduced to such a fragile quiver. “Nothing really matters when the one you love is gone,” he intones against a sad, steady backbeat. As with the “Jesus Alone” video, the black and white visuals here are taken from Andrew Dominik’s 3D feature film One More Time With Feeling, which is screening in theaters worldwide through this Sunday, 9/11. Watch “I Need You” below.
