Nick Cave Announces Idiot Prayer Live Album

on September 03, 2020, 9:21am

Nick Cave has announced a physical release for his recent one-off solo piano performance called Idiot Prayer. It will be available digitally and on CD and vinyl beginning November 20th. Additionally, the film will screen in select theaters globally on November 5th.

Idiot Prayer was recorded at London’s Alexandra Palace in June 2020 as the UK slowly emerged from lockdown, and “was conceived as a reaction to the confinement and Isolation of the preceding months,” a press release notes. The 22-song set included material ranging from early Bad Seeds and Grinderman through Cave’s most recent album, Ghosteen.

The film first premiered in July as a one-off paid livestream. The forthcoming physical release will include four unaired performances, and be pressed on double vinyl.

Pre-orders for the album are now ongoing through Cave’s website, while tickets for the theatrical screenings go on sale beginning September 10th (except in the US, where an on-sale date is forthcoming).

Below, watch a trailer for Idiot Prayer and see the concert’s full setlist.
