Nick Cave, Warren Ellis share ‘We Are Not Alone,’ confirm ‘La Panthère Des Neiges’ soundtrack

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have shared a new song called “We Are Not Alone” from their forthcoming soundtrack for La Panthère Des Neiges.

The song comes from their soundtrack for the French nature documentary, which will be released next month. The La Panthère Des Neiges soundtrack follows Cave and Ellis’ latest album Carnage. Before that, Cave and Ellis had been working on scores together since 2005.

Today’s single, “We Are Not Alone,” isn’t just an instrumental film score, it’s an actual song. The track feels almost like a lullaby, as Nick Cave sings about the beauty of nature.

Listen to “We Are Not Alone” below.

“There is something about the heart of this film that draws you in,” Ellis explains. “I realized after a day, that I wanted to do whatever it took to compose an entire original score. The film deserved to have its own musical voice. I booked five days and asked Nick if he could come in for a day to write a theme song and play some piano. He saw the film and stayed for four days.”

Marie Amiguet and Vincent Munier directed La Panthère Des Neiges. In the film, the pair hunt for the endangered snow leopard in Tibet. “We Are Not Alone” truly sets the tone for the majestic flick.

“In the end we made what I think is one of the most beautiful films we have ever worked on,” Ellis continues. “One of my favourite experiences ever working on a project. The stars are the animals in all their wild glory, as we have never seen them before, and man in reverence and wonder.”
