Ahead of his Alexandra Palace stream...

Nick Cave has shared a sparse, beautiful version of 'Galleon Ship' - watch it now.

The Australian songwriter took hold of London's Alexandra Palace at lockdown ended, shooting a solo live performance.

Accompanied only by his piano, Nick Cave shot new live film Idiot Prayer in an intensely emotive way.

Each song stripped down to the core in a beautiful venue, the film will be broadcast on July 24th.

This new clip of Nick Cave performing 'Galleon Ship' has appeared online, and it's a rendition of startling power.

'Ghosteen' highlight 'Galleon Ship' is turned inside out, driven forwards by Cave's emphatic vocal.

A simple but beautiful watch, it will only heighten the expectations around Idiot Prayer.

Tune in now.
