Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds announce 'B-Sides & Rarities Part II'

After the original 'B-Sides & Rarities Part I' was released in 2005, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are now following up that release with another unheard compilation.

The new collection 'B-Sides & Rarities Part II' will include 27 rare and unreleased tracks from 2006-2020, including the first recordings of ‘Skeleton Tree’, ‘Girl In Amber’ and ‘Bright Horses’, is being previewed by the new track 'Vortex', and is set to be released on the 22nd October through double vinyl, double CD, deluxe double CD, and all digital platforms.

Speaking about the new release, Nick Cave said, “I always liked the original B-Sides & Rarities more than any of our other albums. It’s the only one I’d listen to willingly. It seems more relaxed, even a bit nonsensical in places, but with some beautiful songs throughout. There is something, too, about the smallness of certain songs that is closer to their original spirit. B-Sides & Rarities Part II continues this strange and beautiful collection of lost songs from The Bad Seeds. I love the final side of the last disc because it reveals the small and fragile beginnings of some of my favourite Bad Seeds songs. 'Waiting For You' complete with bizarre ‘canning factory’ rhythm track, a gorgeous 'Life Per Se' deemed too sad for Skeleton Tree, and ‘Earthlings’ that some consider the finest track of the Ghosteen sessions.”
