Songwriting duo Nick Cave and Warren Ellis (The Bad Seeds, Grinderman, The Dirty Three) have teamed up yet again to provide the score to the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy novel The Road. The album will be released digitally November 23rd, and physically January 12th.

Via press release, Cave explains their emotional motivation for the score. “The movie is about the loss of things, the absence of things, the lack of things. The lack of the wife/mother is present in every frame of the film. The delicate edifice of the film holds the ache of her absence, tenderly and by the tips of the fingers,” he explains. “The music was composed as a direct response to the film. A light, haunting, simple score with a sense of absence and loss at its heart.”
