Album out now on vinyl, CD and streaming
Extended film in cinemas - Rescheduled to Nov 26
Following the extraordinary response to the online streaming event in July, Nick Cave releases the album of the performance, Idiot Prayer - Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace, out now on vinyl, CD and streaming services worldwide.
Audiences also have another chance to experience the film in cinemas globally via Trafalgar Releasing now. For some territories where screenings were postponed due to lockdowns, the cinema screenings have been rescheduled to 14 January 2021*. *14 January release includes the UK, Germany, France, Czech Republic, Belgium, Austria and Slovakia.
Idiot Prayer - Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace was recorded 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.
In Idiot Prayer, Cave plays his songs alone at the piano in a rarely seen stripped back form, from early Bad Seeds and Grinderman, right through to the most recent Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album, Ghosteen.
The performance was filmed by award winning Cinematographer Robbie Ryan (The Favourite, Marriage Story, American Honey) in Alexandra Palace’s stunning West Hall. It was edited by Nick Emerson (Lady Macbeth, Emma, Greta). The music was recorded by Dom Monks.
