Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds share stirring trailer for upcoming album and film — watch

In May, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds planted the promotional seed (for lack of a better word) about an upcoming album and film. Weeks later, more details emerged regarding the record, titled Skeleton Tree, and One More Time with Feeling, its companion film: The album will arrive September 9th, and the film will screen one time only in 650 theaters the night prior. Today, an official teaser trailer for both projects has arrived.

The black-and-white cinematic treat features symphonic production underneath Cave’s voice as he speaks about the concept of change, which serves as the framework for both projects. “Most of us don’t want to change, really,” he broodingly states. “But what happens when an event occurs that is so catastrophic, that you just change?” he asks as a violin picks up in pace, his question a reference to the passing of his son. Though it’s left open-ended, for now, it rouses curiosity as any good teaser does.

Check it out above.
