Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have released "Frogs" as the second single from their forthcoming album, Wild God.

The journey to creating Wild God began with "Frogs" The first lines Cave penned for the album were powerfully evocative, referencing the first murder in the Bible, Cain’s slaying of Abel. He wrote, “Ushering in the week he knelt down and crushed his brother’s head in with a bone / It’s my great privilege to walk you home.” This striking couplet became the opening lines to the song, and set the tone for the imagery and themes that followed.

Cave says: “The sheer exuberance of a song like ‘Frogs’, it just puts a big fucking smile on my face.”

Wild God will be released on Bad Seed, in partnership with Play It Again Sam, on 30 August, and is available to pre-order now.
