Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have revealed Jesus Alone, the first track from their new studio album to be released next week – Skeleton Tree. Accompanying the track is footage of the band performing the song taken from Andrew Dominik’s 3D black and white feature film One More Time With Feeling.
Launching globally on September 8th, the film was originally intended as a one night only event. Due to overwhelming demand, cinemas worldwide have added screenings of the film on the 10th and 11th of September.
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ sixteenth studio album will be released globally on vinyl, CD and across all digital platforms on September 9th 2016, the day after the film premieres.
One More Time With Feeling, directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly). The 3D black and white feature film has been officially selected to world premiere at the 2016 Venice Film Festival and will screen in more than 800 cinemas across the world immediately prior to the release of Skeleton Tree the following day. Tickets are selling fast for this unique global cinema event.
Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s intermittent narration and improvised rumination.
Filmed in black-and-white and color, in both 3D and 2D, the result is stark, fragile and raw and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.
