Nick Cave Says New Album ‘CARNAGE’ Is “Brutal But Beautiful”

In a new response to a fan...

Nick Cave has offered a new glimpse of incoming album 'CARNAGE'.

The songwriter revealed at the tale end of 2020 that he was working on something new, alongside Bad Seeds co-conspirator Warren Ellis.

The two have been cooking up new album 'CARNAGE', with Nick Cave dropping a few hints online.

Chatting to fans as part of his slo-mo Ask Me Anything website the Red Hand Files, an enterprising supporter from Croatia wrote: "We need more info about CARNAGE!"

Nick Cave answered: "More info? Okay. How about this? CARNAGE is a brutal but very beautiful record embedded in a communal catastrophe."

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' previous album 'Ghosteen' came in 2019 – last year saw the release of solo live project 'Idiot Prayer'.
