Nick Cave Announces Spoken Word Project 'Seven Psalms'

Thursday, 21 April 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Nick Cave has announced a new spoken word project created with Warren Ellis.

'Seven Psalms' comprises seven spoken word pieces set to music composed by the longtime collaborators, along with a 12-minute instrumental cut.

Recorded during the sessions for their 2021 album 'Carnage', and co-produced by Cave with Luis Almau, it's due out on June 10 as a limited edition 10″ vinyl via Cave Things, the artist's online store. It will also be available to stream on digital platforms. Cave said:

"While in lockdown I wrote a number of psalms, or small, sacred songs—one a day for a week. The seven psalms are presented as one long meditation—on faith, rage, love, grief, mercy, sex and praise. A veiled, contemplative offering borne of an uncertain time. I hope you like it."


'Seven Psalms' tracklist:

Side A
1. How Long Have I Waited?
2. Have Mercy On Me
3. I Have Trembled My Way Deep
4. I Have Wandered All My Unending Days
5. Splendour, Glorious Splendour
