Watch Nick Cave Perform ‘Euthanasia’ From Idiot Prayer Livestream

Earlier this year, Nick Cave performed a solo set at London’s Alexandra Palace that was livestreamed for a ticketed audience. The set will be released later this year both in theaters and as a proper album. Now a previously unreleased song from that show has emerged.

The tender piano track “Euthanasia” was debuted during the stream and recorded during the Skeleton Tree era (around 2016). And as you can imagine, it has pretty haunting lyrics.

The Idiot Prayer film will be released in select theaters on Nov. 5, with the album following on Nov. 20. See the tracklisting for the latter below.
