Surprise! Nick Cave and longtime Bad Seeds associate Warren Ellis have unveiled a brand new album called Carnage, and you can stream it in full  via Apple Music or Spotify and on YouTube below.

The eight-song project written and recorded by the two musicians during quarantine. They’ve been collaborating with one another for nearly 30 years, both in the BAD SEEDS and on multiple soundtracks, but Carnage marks the first batch of songs that they’ve ever released as a duo.

In a press release, Cave described the album as “a brutal but very beautiful record nested in a communal catastrophe.”

Meanwhile, Ellis shared that “Making Carnage was an accelerated process of intense creativity,” he said. “The eight songs were there in one form or another within the first two and a half days.
Carnage will be available on CD and vinyl starting May 28th. Pre-orders are now ongoing.
Cave and Ellis have also contributed to Marianne Faithfull’s new album, She Walks In Beauty, which is set to arrive later in April. The album was recorded in collaboration with Ellis and features piano playing from Cave, as well as sound textures from Brian Eno.
