The Sydney Opera House has produced a star-studded interpretation of Nick Cave’s 'The Ship Song’. Scroll down to listen to the track and watch the accompanying video.

Featured on the track are Martha Wainwright, The Temper Trap and Neil Finn of Crowded House, as well as local acts Sarah Blasko , Angus and Julia Stone, Daniel Johns, The Sydney Symphony, Australian Chamber Orchestra and many more Australian artists.

The video stars Martha Wainwright surrounded by schoolchildren and Katie Noonan singing with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, as well as the The Temper Trap performing in the basement of the building. The ‘making of’ video calls the project ‘an iconic song for an iconic building’. More details can be seen at Theshipsongproject.com.

The project began in late 2010, when the Sydney Opera House decided to re-record Nick Cave’s 'The Ship Song’ as a tribute to the world famous building. Designed in 1957 by Danish architect Jørn Oberg Utzon the building was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. A documentary about the project is coming soon.

‘The Ship Song’ originally appeared on Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ 1990 album 'The Good Son'. In May of this year, the track was voted one of the Top 30 Australian songs of all time.
