[dropcap]Nick[/dropcap] Cave & The Bad Seeds have premiered the heart-wrenching video for I Need You, coinciding with the September 9th release of their 16th studio album Skeleton Tree, along with the accompanying film One More Time With Feeling which premiered on the 8th.
This follows the release of Jesus Alone—a song seemingly about despair, but in the case of I Need You, Nick Cave rather than sing…more so weeps the song—as his piano playing is accented by the synth organ dirge emanating from long time collaborator Warren Ellis’s lap. This video is hard to watch, given the emotion is a raw and authentic catharsis, emphasizing Cave’s loss of his son Arthur during the album’s production.
This is truly a song in which to weep.
