NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS Return With New Album, Release Second Single ‘Frogs’

Share This:

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds return with their new album on August 30, Wild God. Today, they release Frogs, the second offering from the band’s 18th studio album.

The journey to creating Wild God began with the sweeping epic Frogs. The first lines Cave penned for the album were powerfully evocative, referencing the first murder in the Bible, Cain’s slaying of Abel. He wrote, “Ushering in the week, he knelt down and crushed his brother’s head in with a bone/It’s my great privilege to walk you home.” This striking couplet became the opening lines to the song, and set the tone for the imagery and themes that followed.

Cave says, “The sheer exuberance of a song like ‘Frogs’, it just puts a big f***ing smile on my face.”
