Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Announce New Album ‘Wild God’, Share New Single

    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have announced their eighteenth studio album: Wild God will arrive on August 30. The follow-up to 2019’s Ghosteen was produced by Cave and Warren Ellis, with mixing by David Fridmann. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the record’s title track. Check it out and find the album cover and tracklist below.

    Cave began writing Wild God on New Year’s Day 2023. Sessions took place at Miraval Studios in Provence, France and Soundtree Studios in London, England, with additional performances from Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood (who joined the Bad Seeds’ touring band in 2023) and Luis Almau on guitar.

    “I hope the album has the effect on listeners that it’s had on me,” Cave said in a statement. “It bursts out of the speaker, and I get swept up with it. It’s a complicated record, but it’s also deeply and joyously infectious. There is never a master plan when we make a record. The records rather reflect back the emotional state of the writers and musicians who played them. Listening to this, I don’t know, it seems we’re happy.”

    He added: “Wild God…there’s no fucking around with this record. When it hits, it hits. It lifts you. It moves you. I love that about it.”

    Nick Cave recently shared a cover of Édith Piaf’s ‘La Vie En Rose’ for The New Look soundtrack. Cave and Warren Ellis, who last released Carnage in 2021, are also set to score the upcoming Amy Winehouse biopic Back to Black.
