Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds are releasing a brand new album and an accompanying feature film next week. The album is titled Skeleton Tree and is due out September 9 and the film (shot partially in 3D), One More Time With Feeling, will screen for one night only the night before the album's release, on September 8. But it's only a week before the release date and we haven't really been treated to much in the way of music from the album. That's changed and now the band have shared a video for "Jesus Alone." It's a hypnotic six-minute long song and the video is a simple black & white clip of Cave and the band performing the song in the studio. Watch below.

The album is the follow-up to 2013's Push the Sky Away and was recorded in late 2014 at Retreat Studios, Brighton and at La Frette Studios, France in autumn 2015. It was mixed at AIR Studios, London in early 2016. Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly) directed the film, which will screen in more than 650 cinemas across the world on September 8, 2016.

Here's how a press release describes the film: "Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds' filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave's intermittent narration and improvised rumination. Filmed in black-and-white and color, in both 3D and 2D, the result is stark, fragile and raw, and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness."
