Nick Cave’s livestreamed concert Idiot Prayer is set for release later this week, and today he’s shared a preview with a performance of “Galleon Ship.”
The clip, which is just over a minute long, sees Cave delivering a haunting solo performance.
“I loved playing deconstructed versions of mesons at these shows, distilling them to their essential forms – with an emphasis on the delivery the words,” Cave says in the trailer for the performance. “I felt I was rediscovering the songs all over again, and started to think about going into a studio and recording these reimagined version at some stage – whenever I could find the time.”
Watch Cave’s performance of “Galleon Ship” before.
Idiot Prayer will be available to stream on Thursday, July 23rd.
