Nick Cave will launch a brand new spoken-word album on 10″ vinyl and streaming providers on June 17. Seven Psalms contains seven spoken tracks that Cave set to music in collaboration with Warren Ellis, plus a 12-minute instrumental from the classes for the pair’s 2021 album Carnage. Cave produced the album with Luis Almau. Watch a trailer beneath.
In a press launch, Cave wrote: “Whereas in lockdown I wrote a variety of psalms, or small, sacred songs—one a day for every week. The seven psalms are offered as one lengthy meditation—on religion, rage, love, grief, mercy, intercourse, and reward. A veiled, contemplative providing borne of an unsure time. I hope you prefer it.”
