Nick Cave has announced a new spoken-word album titled Seven Psalms. It will be released on 10″ vinyl and streaming services on June 10. The project features seven spoken word pieces set to music in collaboration with Warren Ellis, as well as a 12-minute instrumental taken from the sessions for their 2021 album Carnage. Check out a trailer for the album below.
“While in lockdown I wrote a number of psalms, or small, sacred songs – one a day for a week,” Cave said in a statement. “The seven psalms are presented as one long meditation – on faith, rage, love, grief, mercy, sex, and praise. A veiled, contemplative offering borne of an uncertain time. I hope you like it.”
