Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will release their 16th studio album, Skeleton Tree, September 9th. The Australian post-punk outfit will debut the entire album in a feature film called One More Time With Feeling, set to screen one-night only on September 8th.
One More Time With Feeling was directed by New Zealand filmmaker Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly). The film includes footage of the Bad Seeds performing Skeleton Tree, along with interviews and Cave’s candid musings. Skeleton Tree follows the band’s 2013 LP Push the Sky Away.
The project began as a performance-based piece and evolved into a documentary-type project that explored the “tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album” concerning the loss of Cave’s teenage son in July 2015.
Skeleton Tree is available to pre-order on vinyl and CD, as well as digitally via Cave’s website. Tickets for One More Time With Feeling, as well as a list of participating theaters, is available on the film’s site.
