Nothing Nick Cave does is normal, so it should come as no surprise that his new song with the Bad Seeds, "Give Us a Kiss," is anything but a loving, simple exhortation to a lover.
Instead, this subdued, eerie tune is about a lost lover still haunting the singer's dreams. "Give us a kiss / One little sip, sip, sip / Before you slip, slip, slip away," Cave sings, sounding simultaneously tender and obsessive in a way only he can.
The track is from Cave's new movie, 20,000 Days on Earth, a partly fictitious documentary about 24 hours in Cave's life that was well-received at Sundance and currently enjoys a 95 percent "fresh" rating on RottenTomatoes. Watch the trailer below.
