The fourth official live album in the band’s history, Live from KCRW features a stripped-down line-up performing four songs from the recent global hit album Push the Sky Away alongside classics spanning the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds songbook.
The performance took place on April 18, between the band’s two Coachella festival appearances.
It was recorded in front of a live audience for Morning Becomes Eclectic as part the public radio station’s KCRW’s Apogee Sessions series, which features station favorites in an intimate setting.
Past performers have included everyone from Patti Smith and Death Cab for Cutie to Janelle Monae and James Blake. The session was recorded by legendary producer/mixer Bob Clearmountain.
Live from KCRW will see wide release digitally on December 3. The album will also be available as a digital deluxe bundle with Push the Sky Away.
