    Just a week after announcing it, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have revealed their new album, Ghosteen. Officially set for an October 4th release (with physical copies coming on October 8th), you can stream the double album in full below via YouTube, Apple Music, or Spotify.

    The album follows 2016’s Skeleton Tree, a cathartic record influenced by the death of Cave’s 15-year-old son, who fell from a cliff in Brighton, England. It appears that Ghosteen is a process of that grief as well. The singer explained via his site The Red Hand Files that the album’s “Part 1” is eight songs about children, while “Part 2″ focuses on their parents and features “two long songs linked by a spoken word piece.” “Ghosteen is a migrating spirit,” he noted.

    Cave’s wife, Susie Bick, previously hinted at a new Bad Seeds album through her blog, explaining that the songwriter had been experiencing lucid sleep, and that his new ideas “reveal themselves at night in his fever dreams. They are his Fever Songs.”


    Cave is currently on the road for the latest North American leg of his “Conversations Tour”. Check those tickets here.
