See Nick Cave and Bad Seeds’ Devastating ‘Steve McQueen’ Video

Spoken word piece features in documentary ‘One More Time With Feeling’

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have shared the official video for “Steve McQueen,” a spoken word piece featured in the documentary One More Time With Feeling but left off the accompanying LP Skeleton Tree.

The black-and-white clip from the harrowing Andrew Dominik-directed film shows Cave and his Bad Seeds rehearsing the Skeleton Tree track “Girl in Amber” while the singer recites his foreboding poem in voiceover.

“I’m a housefly called ‘God,’ and I don’t give a fuck/ Here I come up the elevator, 60 floors, hoping I don’t get stuck/ And everyone out here does mean, and everyone out here does pain/ But someone’s got to sing new stars, and someone’s got to sing the rain,” Cave says. “I’m the atomizer, I’m the vaporizer, I turn everything to crud/ I like it here in your flesh and blood.”

One More Time With Feeling arrived on DVD, Blu-ray and 3-D Blu-ray today. On May 5th, Cave and the Bad Seeds will release Lovely Creatures, a 3CD/1DVD collection that culls the band’s greatest hits and fan favorites from 1984 to 2014.
