Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds have announced details of a new double album. The release, titled Ghosteen, is due next week, though a specific release date is yet to be confirmed.
News of Ghosteen was revealed by Cave on his Red Hand Files site. In response to a fan question about new music, Cave replied: "You can expect a new album next week. It is called Ghosteen. It is a double album."
Cave added that the first part of the album consists of eight songs, with part two made up of two longer tracks linked by a spoken word piece. Talking about the album, the frontman added: "The songs on the first album are the children. The songs on the second album are their parents. Ghosteen is a migrating spirit."
"The Spinning Song"
"Waiting For You"
Ghosteen is the Bad Seeds' first album since 2016's Skeleton Tree. Last year they released concert movie Distant Sky – Live In Copenhagen.
