Watch Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ ‘The Making Of Wild God’ part one, featuring Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have shared part one of ‘The Making Of Wild God’ featuring Radiohead‘s Colin Greenwood.

Directed by Megan Cullen and recorded at Miraval Studios in France, the new exclusive footage provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds created their upcoming 18th album ‘Wild God‘.

The first part of the docu-film sees Cave at a grand piano, playing chords. “We’ve just got to get this right ok? Don’t fuck it up at the 11th hour. Is that one of the things we thought was good? Sounds like a mad-man walked in to it,” Cave says during the first clips.

Greenwood also makes an appearance while laying down parts of a bass track in the studio. Towards the last minute of the video, shots of the band and producer Warren Ellis  recording different parts of songs are all showcased with the album’s title track playing over it.

Set for release on August 30, ‘Wild Gods’ will be comprised of 10 songs and see the band move between themes of convention and experimentation – introducing left-turns that heighten the rich imagery and emotive narratives created by the frontman. You can pre-order the LP here.

“I hope the album has the effect on listeners that it’s had on me. It bursts out of the speaker, and I get swept up with it. It’s a complicated record, but it’s also deeply and joyously infectious,” Cave said of the upcoming release.

“There is never a masterplan when we make a record. The records rather reflect back the emotional state of the writers and musicians who played them. Listening to this, I don’t know, it seems we’re happy,” he added. “There’s no fucking around with this record. When it hits, it hits. It lifts you. It moves you. I love that about it.”

Last year, following the release of his book Faith, Hope & Carnage, Nick Cave spoke to NME and revealed what fans can expect from his upcoming music.

When asked if he was pouring more love into his music, he responded: “I don’t know about the music, but these days I feel a more urgent need to connect with people.

“There’s a kind of duty in that, that maybe I didn’t feel before. That I have at my disposal something that’s very valuable – to make music and I don’t want to squander that opportunity in phoning in gigs or doing half-hearted attempts. Everyone is as important as each other.”

Cave also recently announced a 2024 UK and Europe tour set to kick off in Germany this September, continuing through October before a UK leg in November. You can buy tickets here (UK and Ireland) and here (Europe).

Elsewhere, the frontman recently shared his advice with an artist who reached out, saying that they are considering boycotting The Great Escape in solidarity with Palestine.
