Nick Cave has posted a trailer for his forthcoming 3D concert film with the Bad Seeds online.
One More Time With Feeling is set be part of a global cinema event on September 8, with the album ‘Skeleton Tree’ set to follow at midnight the day after. You can watch footage of the trailer below.
Directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly, the film will receive its world premiere at the 2016 Venice Film Festival before being screened in more than 800 cinemas across the globe.
Filmed in both black-and-white and colour and in 2D and 3D, Dominik’s film was initially intended to be a performance-based film of the recording of ‘Skeleton Tree’. But, following the death of Cave’s 15-year-old son Arthur in November 2015, a statement said: “The film evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album.”
The film sees interviews with the band accompanied by Cave’s narration and is described as “a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.”
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds last released an album in 2013 with ‘Push The Sky Away’.
Meanwhile, Cave and Warren Ellis are scoring the soundtrack to Hell Or High Water, a film starring Jeff Bridges and directed by David Mackenzie.
The film will be released on August 12, with the original soundtrack landing via Milan Records on the same day. It features several pieces of music by Cave and Ellis, who have previously scored the likes of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and The Proposition together.
The Hell Or High Water soundtrack will also feature songs by Waylon Jennings, Townes Van Zandt, Chris Stapleton, and others.
