Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ sixteenth studio album Skeleton Tree is out on 9 September. The release is accompanied by a documentary about the album’s production and the tragic circumstances that surround it.
One More Time With Feeling was directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly). Cave decided to make the documentary as a way of speaking about his 15-year-old son’s death without dealing with the press. Arthur died after falling from a cliff near Cave’s home in Brighton.
In an interview with The Guardian, Dominik said: “Nick went into a newsagent in Brighton and saw a copy of Mojo; he realised he was going to have to promote the record. Arthur had died halfway through making it. And the idea of [promoting] it made him feel sick, because he was going to have to discuss the context of the record with a whole bunch of journalists.”
The documentary was filmed in both 3D and black and white. Out now in over 800 cinemas across the world, One More Time With Feeling will be shown at the 2016 Venice Film Festival on 10 September.
Nick Cave also recently worked on the soundtrack for the film Hell or High Water. It is directed by David Mackenzie and stars Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine, Ben Foster and Gil Birmingham. The soundtrack will be released through Milan Records alongside the film on 9 September.
