Nick Cave's Grinderman project is due back this September with the full length release Grinderman 2. They've just announced the details behind the first single off of Grinderman 2, titled "Heathen Child."
Due out on August 30th on Mute Records in Europe and August 31st via Anti- Records in the U.S.
"The song Heathen Child cuts a deep seductively heavy groove interjected with dazzling squalls of saw-tooth distortion. It abounds in lyrical imagery at turns lascivious, paranoid, philosophic, absurd and flat out abusive," reads the announcement for the release. Sounds heavy.
The video for the single was directed by John Hillcoat.
Grinderman 2 was recorded last year in London at RAK, State of The Ark and Assault and Battery studios, and was co-produced by Nick Launay and the band.
