The last Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds record, Push The Sky Away came back in 2013, but as Pitchfork reports, a new album is most likely on the way.
The Laemmle Theatre in Los Angeles lists an untitled Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds film on their website for a September 8th screening. The official description says the band will be performing songs from “the new album”, which will be released at midnight following the film. Read the document (which has since been removed) below via Sterogum:
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.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have not confirmed. Stay tuned for further details.
