He revealed the new album via his Red Hand Files.
According to Cave, Ghosteen is a double album and will arrive next week. The first part of the album is made up of eight songs, while the second part features two long songs and a piece of spoken word. He also had this to say of the new album: “The songs on the first album are the children. The songs on the second album are their parents. Ghosteen is a migrating spirit.”
The album follows Skeleton Tree, which was released in 2016. Earlier this year Nick Cave revealed that he worked on “an extraordinarily wild and fucked-up piece of hip-hop” with the psychedelic rap trio Flatbush Zombies. The track purportedly centered around his cover of the T. Rex classic ‘Cosmic Dancer’.
