Nick Cave announces new spoken word album, Seven Psalms

Nick Cave has announced a new album of spoken word pieces, titled Seven Psalms. The album is out June 17 and features seven spoken word pieces set to music, in collaboration with Warren Ellis. It also features one 12-minute instrumental track.

“While in lockdown I wrote a number of psalms, or small, sacred songs—one a day for a week,” Cave says in a statement. “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.”

Check out the tracklist and trailer below. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ last album was 2021’s Carnage.
