Having made a film to accompany their new music, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have also been making some music to accompany a new film. Which is to say they have scored the soundtrack to ‘Hell Or High Water’, a new movie starring Jeff Bridges and directed by David Mackenzie.

The film is set for release next month, as is the soundtrack, meaning it’ll be in the public domain before the new Nick Cave And The Bad Sees album ‘Skeleton Tree’, which is due out on 9 Sep, the day after its accompanying film ‘One More Time With Feeling’.

Says director Mackenzie of the soundtrack Cave and Ellis have scored for him: “What I love about Nick and Warren’s film music is that it’s epic and expansive without being grandiose. For me as a filmmaker this hits a sweet spot where the score is able to have scale and emotion but not feel manipulative or overwhelming”.
