There's a new Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds album and concert film coming this year

A new album and film from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds is on the way for later this year according to Laemmle Theatres.

The film (currently untitled) premieres 8 September, with the record released a day later on 9 September. The film will feature Cave & Co. performing tracks from the LP - which'll be the first time fans can hear new material, as there are no plans for promo or singles prior to its release.

Writing on their website, Laemmle Theatres let the cat out the bag:

This is, first and foremost, a performance film of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds performing songs from their new album. The record has an intimacy and starkness that the film’s photographic style will reflect. It will be shot in black and white, color and 3-D. The idea is to create an experience that is immersive but also elegant, that feels both immediate and archival.

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ new album will be released at midnight into 9th September 2016, with the film making its premiere on 8th September. Contrary to usual practice, none of the tracks from the album will be serviced to media or released as singles ahead of its release date, thus making the screening of the film the first medium through which anyone anywhere will be able to hear & experience the songs.

The band's previous LP, Push The Sky Away, was released in 2013. Cave's kept busy since then with a book and 20,000 Days On Earth.
