Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds have unveiled a previously unreleased track called ‘Earthlings’, which was recorded during the sessions for 2019’s Ghosteen. The song is taken from B-Sides & Rarities: Part II, a sequel to their 2005 B-Sides & Rarities compilation that was announced last month with the track ‘Vortex’. In a statement, Cave described ‘Earthlings’ as the “missing link that binds Ghosteen together. A lovely song that just got away.” Listen to it below.
The 27-track B-Sides & Rarities: Part II, which covers the period from 2005 to 2020, is set for release on October 22 via Mute. Earlier this year, Cave and Warren Ellis released their album Carnage.
