Nick Cave Covers ‘La Vie En Rose’

For the soundtrack of The New Look...

Nick Cave has shared a brooding cover of ‘La Vie En Rose’.

The cover was recorded for the soundtrack of The New Look, the acclaimed Apple TV+ series. Multi Grammy award-winning producer Jack Antonoff curated the soundtrack, with a host of top tier names involved.

Nick Cave breaths fresh life into ‘La Vie En Rose’, embodying the oft-covered standard with a new breadth of feeling. The Australian songwriter is noted for his own work – and his writing – but he is also a fantastic performer of other people’s work.

This articulate, emotive rendition is packed with feeling, a simple yet profound performance. Nick Cave is on a run right now – his beautiful take on ‘A Rainy Night In Soho’ at the funeral of close friend Shane MacGowan caused global admiration.

For his part, Jack Antonoff is incredibly busy right now – his band Bleachers will release a self-titled album on March 8th.
