The Bad Seeds bandmates have worked on several scores and soundtracks together in the past, most recently composing the score for the movie Wind River, which was released last year.
The pair, who have written the entire soundtrack for Kings, have shared two first tastes of it in ‘Saying Goodbye’ and ‘Waking Up’. The atmospheric cuts will be released as part of a 16-track album on April 27, via Milan Records.
The tracklist for the Kings OST is as follows:
‘Leave The Gun’
‘Where Are The Boys?’
‘Death Of William’
Kings will star Halle Berry and Daniel Craig, and is set for release in the US on April 27. No UK release date has been confirmed at present. According to IMDB, the plot line follows a foster family in south central LA in the weeks before the city was engulfed in riots following the verdict of the Rodney King trial.
Meanwhile, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are to release a new concert film in cinemas world-wide for one night only. Distant Sky captures the band’s performance in Copenhagen last year in what was their first show back after the death of the frontman’s son in 2015. Details on screenings can be found here.
Cave will also embark on a short Q&A tour in April and May. In a press release, he said that, while he wasn’t sure what would happen at the events, he has “always loved the Q&A format – not the formal onstage interviews that precede them, but the questions from the audience afterwards.”
