Author, screenwriter, soundtrack composer, essayist, former heroin addict and one of the finest songwriters of his or any other generation—Nick Cave is the post modern renaissance man.
And while some of his more recent musical offerings may not have lived up to the incredibly high standards he has set over more than three decades, this, the first single from a new LP to be released next year, hints at a magnificent return to form.
The LP cannot come soon enough (February, to be precise).

Of course, Cave is best known for his 1996 duet with Kylie Minogue, which the pair recently re-recorded for Kylie’s Abbey Road Sessions LP. It remains, by a long, long way, the best thing she has ever done.
