Last month, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds announced the upcoming release of Distant Sky – Live In Copenhagen, a live EP recorded at their electrifying October show in the expansive Copenhagen Royal Arena. Available for pre-order now, the EP is out on vinyl and digitally Sept. 28. To tide us over, the Australian bard and his band have shared a video performance from that night. Joined by Danish soprano Else Torp, who also appears on the track’s original Skeleton Tree recording, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds deliver an orchestral rendition of “Distant Sky,” which arrives as a quietly staged slow burn. Watch the masterful performance below.
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds are also going on tour in October. Find their tour dates, as well as the album art and tracklist for Distant Sky, right here. Cigarettes After Sex will join them on some dates. Again, you can watch the band sing “Distant Sky” with the soulful Else Torp below.
