Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds return with new album, Wild God. Releasing on August 30th, the first taste of the band’s 18th studio album is title track, “Wild God,” out now. Wild God is the follow-up to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds since 2019’s LP Ghosteen.

“I hope the album has the effect on listeners that it’s had on me,” Cave says. “It bursts out of the speaker, and I get swept up with it. It’s a complicated record, but it’s also deeply and joyously infectious. There is never a master plan when we make a record. The records rather reflect back the emotional state of the writers and musicians who played them. Listening to this, I don’t know, it seems we’re happy.”

Wild God was Produced by Cave and Warren Ellis, and mixed by David Fridmann, Cave began writing the album on New Year’s Day 2023. With sessions at Miraval Studios in Provence, France and Soundtree Studios in London, England, the Bad Seeds added their unique alchemy, with additional performances from Colin Greenwood (bass) and Luis Almau (nylon string guitar, acoustic guitar).

“Wild God… there’s no fucking around with this record. When it hits, it hits. It lifts you. It moves you. I love that about it.” – Nick Cave.
