- READ MORE: Nick Cave live in London: the breathtaking ‘Idiot Prayer’ is an exorcism of death, religion and romance
On yesterday’s edition of James Corden’s US chat show, Cave offered up a live rendition of the song which was recorded at London’s Alexandra Palace, the setting of his recent Idiot Prayer live-streamed concert.
Cave will release an extended cinematic version of Idiot Prayer in select cinemas this November, and has today shared a new trailer for the film. Fans will also be able to hear the performance on a live album, which will be available on vinyl, CD and digital platforms.
In a five-star review of Idiot Prayer, NME wrote: “Without crowds, chatter and the mess of thousands of human bodies all bumping up against each other, it’s possible to focus purely on Cave’s devastating lyricism: religion, death and romance all getting their chance to shine in the golden and purple lights that softly illuminate the room.”
Last month, the ‘Ghosteen’ musician surprised fans by launching a new range of official merchandise. The ‘Cave Things’ online store contains lyric sheets, prints designed by Cave, T-shirts and Warren Ellis plectrums and bags.
