Carnage, numele viitorului album Nick Cave

Nick Cave a anunțat că a intrat în studio pentru a înregistra un nou album, împreună cu formația sa, The Bad Seeds. Noul album se va numi Carnage și va fi al 18-lea album de studio lansat de Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Anul trecut, Cave a anunțat pe blogul Red Hand Files, că este „timpul pentru un nou album”, după ce turneu de promovare pentru albumul Ghosteen a fost anulat din cauza pandemiei covid.

 După anularea turneului, Cave a lansat filmul și albumul live „Idiot Prayer”, care a fost înregistrat ca o experiență solo intimă, filmată la Alexandra Palace din Londra, în timpul lock down-ului din primăvara 2020.

 Zilele trecute, un fan din Londra, pe nume Tobias, l-a întrebat pe Nick Cave, pe blogul Red Hand Files, "How is your lockdown?"

În raspunsul dat lui Tobias, Cave a confirmat că a intrat în studio, împreună cu Warren Ellis (The Bad Seeds), pentru a înregistra un nou album, intitulat Carnage!

Iată răspunsul complet al lui Nick Cave:

“Dear Tobias,

In many ways lockdown has felt weirdly familiar, like I’ve experienced it before. I guess this should come as no surprise as I was a heroin addict for many years and self-isolating and social distancing were the name of the game. I am also well acquainted with the mechanics of grief — collective grief works in an eerily similar way to personal grief, with its dark confusion, deep uncertainty and loss of control. For me, lockdown feels like a state mandated version of more of the same — a formalisation of the kind of hermit-like behaviour to which I’ve always been predisposed, and so, as difficult as it has been to see the devastation and anguish caused by the pandemic — including to the lives of those close to me, and many who have written into The Red Hand Files — I have been doing okay.

I am surprised, though, at just how hard not being able to play live has felt. I have come to the conclusion that I am essentially a thing that tours. There is a terrible yearning and a feeling of a life being half-lived. I miss the thrill of stepping onto the stage, the rush of the performance, where all other concerns dissolve into a pure animal interrelation with my audience. I miss the complete surrender to the moment, the loss of self, the physicalness of it all, the feeding frenzy of communal love, the religion, the glorious exchange of bodily fluids — and The Bad Seeds themselves, of course, in all their reckless splendour, how I miss them. As much as sitting behind my desk can bring me a lot of joy, and the imagination can be a stimulating, even dangerous place, I long for the wanton abandon of the live performance.

Anyway, as promised in my last issue, I did go into the studio — with Warren — to make a record.

It’s called CARNAGE.”

Love, Nick”
