Nick Cave's music has never been known for being light, bright and cheerful. His brand new album, Skeleton Tree, is the first thing he has written, recorded and released following the death of his 15 year old son last year..
To say that this is one of the more harrowing albums from a guy who has done plenty of the sort is a bit of an understatement. Love and devastation are importunate things.
Nick also turned 59 years old today.
What are you listening to tonight?
