Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Announce New ‘Skeleton Tree’ Album

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will return later this year with Cave’s 16th studio album, Skeleton Tree.

Due Sept. 9, Skeleton Tree follows 2013’s Push the Sky Away, which broke the U.S. Top 30 while peaking at No. 3 in the U.K., and marks Cave’s first new LP since the death of his son in 2015. Scheduled for release on CD, digital, and vinyl platforms, the album will be accompanied by a documentary titled One More Time with Feeling.

Helmed by Killing Them Softly director Andrew Dominik, One More Time with Feeling presents a “stark, fragile and raw” behind-the-scenes look at Cave’s creative process while offering “a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.” According to the press release announcing the album and film, Feeling evolved out of a “performance-based concept” into something far more revealing — and an audiovisual experience blending color and black-and-white footage as well as 2D and 3D sequences.

“Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album,” reads the announcement. “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.”

One More Time with Feeling is scheduled to bow Sept. 8, giving fans an opportunity to hear the new material a day before it arrives in stores. For more information about times and locations for theatrical screenings and to pre-order Skeleton Tree, visit Cave’s official site.
