Business as usual with a typically creepy hell ballad from Cave and co

The first single from the forthcoming Bad Seeds album is the kind of hushed hell ballad that Nick Cave probably sings his kids to sleep with. He can put as many lullaby tones and gentle flute passages as he like on the cut, the man could sing Bonkers and make it sound creepy. As it is, We No Who U R has a kind of Portishead allure to it's slowly walking bassline and dusty organ stabs. 'The trees will burn your blackened hands' sings Nick, as ever, all about the good times, 'We know where you are, and we know where you live, and we know there's no need to forgive'.... Vintage Bad Seeds material that bodes very well for the new album- listen here
