Watch: Nick Cave releases performance of ‘Galleon Ship’ from ‘Idiot Prayer’

'Idiot Prayer' will be available to stream on Thursday, July 23

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.”
