The Genius Of Nick Cave

#14: Jesus Alone

On Thursday, this appeared on You Tube. It's the first track from the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album 'Skeleton Tree', released next week. The video is footage of the accompanying movie, recorded during the making of the album following the death of Nick's teenage son Arthur. It's an intense, emotional, and rather unsettling song. It's the sound of Nick facing his demons. It's one of the most intriguing things he's ever released.


  1. A dense, humid, fog of a song. Unsettling indeed.

  2. I'm hurting right now....there's four separate showings of the the film in Glasgow next week and so I thought finding 2 tix wouldn't be a problem. Went for them 12 days ago and all were sold out.....have put out a plea for help on social media!
