Nick Cave and Warren Ellis to release 'The Road' film soundtrack

Pair's latest movie effort set for January release

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis to release 'The Road' film soundtrack
Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds and Grinderman partner Warren Ellis have announced that they are set to release their soundtrack to the forthcoming film 'The Road' on January 4 next year.

The film is directed by John Hillcoat, is an adaptation of the book of the same name by Cormac McCarthy, and stars Viggo Mortensen.

"The movie is about the loss of things, the absence of things, the lack of things," Cave said. "The lack of the wife/mother is present in every frame of the film.

"The delicate edifice of the film holds the ache of her absence, tenderly and by the tips of the fingers. The music was composed as a direct response to the film. A light, haunting, simple score with a sense of absence and loss at its heart."

Cave scored Hillcoat's 2005 film 'The Proposition'. 'The Road' is released in UK cinemas on January 4.
