NEW MUSIC: NICK CAVE & WARREN ELLIS | WE ARE NOT ALONE (ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK)
Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have shared “We Are Not Alone,” the first single from their original soundtrack for the upcoming documentary "Les Panthére Des Neiges." The album arrives on Dec. 17 via Invada Records/Lakeshore Records. The film will be released in the U.S. on Dec. 22. "La Panthére des Neiges" follows wildlife photographer Vincent Munier and novelist Sylvain Tesson as they explore the valleys of the Tibetan plateau for unique animals, including the elusive, titular snow leopard. The accompanying video for the single (which is a different edit than what will appear on the album) features Marie Amiguet and Vincent Munier-directed film footage. “There is something about the heart of this film that draws you in. I realized after a day that I wanted to do whatever it took to compose an entirely original score,” Ellis said in a statement. “The film deserved to have its musical voice. I booked five days and asked Nick if he could come in for a day to write a theme song and play some piano. He saw the film and stayed for four days. In April, Cave and Ellis followed up their album "Carnage" with the 7" single "Grief." This month, they announced more than a dozen 2022 U.S. tour dates. Cave portrays H.G. Wells in "The Electrical Life of Louis Wain," a new biopic about the titular British artist. Ellis and Cave recently announced their first tour as a duo. They launch their 17-date North American trek on March 1 at Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville, North Carolina.
