Nick Cave And Kylie Minogue Re-Record Their “Murder Ballad”
New acoustic version of “Where the Wild Roses Grow”
Seventeen years ago, Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue surprised the world with their unexpected duet on “Where The Wild Roses Grow”, probably the best-remembered song, most often played on the radio, of all of those on the highly acclaimed Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album “Murder Ballads” (Mute, 1995). Now they have re-recorded the song with an eye to “The Abbey Road Sessions”, Minogue’s new album, in which she is performing hits from her career accompanied by an orchestra. This version of the “murder ballad” has nevertheless ended up sounding barer than the original. The album comes out on 29th October via Parlophone.
