Nick Cave is a busy man outside the Bad Seeds, writing screenplays, and when not scoring films with Warren Ellis, the two are ripping it as Grinderman with bandmates Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos.
Grinderman will release their second studio album, Grinderman 2, via Mute on September 13th and via Anti- Records in the U.S. on September 14th. They released a stream of this growling, carnal single “Heathen Child,” which gets a release ahead of the full album on September 6th. A further limited edition double A-side 12″ Coloured Vinyl will offer the two single tracks, a poster, plus the bonus track “Super Heathen Child” that features King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp.
Grinderman lists the tracks as:
1. Side A: Heathen Child/ Star Charmer
2. Side AA: Super Heathen Child (w/ Robert Fripp)
They’re both too tough for one to be on the B-side, obviously.
And director John Hillcoat’s Ginderman2 album teaser deserves more than one viewing:
