Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Release Songs from ‘20,000 Days on Earth’ Film
The enigmatic crooner stars as a fictionalized version of himself in the Sundance Film Festival favorite that, according to a press release, is "neither a music documentary nor a concert film" and "contains not just electrifying performances, but also keen insights into the creative process: we see a song grow from the tiniest of ideas sketched out by Cave in his office to a monstrous epic performed by the peerless Bad Seeds on stage at Sydney Opera House."
Check out the trailer:
Obviously, the soundtrack is packed to the brim with songs by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds -- two of which (the previously unavailable 'Give Us a Kiss' and 'Jubilee Street' live from the Sydney Opera House) are now available for online listening. Check out both the lyric video for 'Give Us a Kiss' (recorded during the sessions for 2013's 'Push the Sky Away') and stream the live audio to 'Jubilee Street' below.
Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, '20,000 Days on Earth' is set for release in the U.S. on Sept. 17.
