Solo piano version by Nick Cave, recorded 2020
Taken from Idiot Prayer: Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace

`Based on the novelty ‘picture disc’ phenomena of the 1970s I have designed a series of four discs of tracks from the Idiot Prayer film. I have drawn four cute animals re-enacting, in a typically obscure and perplexing Cave-ian manner, the essence of the four songs.

EUTHANANSIA –
An innocent but doomed lamb

WATCHING ALICE –
A sexualised rabbit

SAD WATERS –
A cat stepping into a river

STRANGER THAN KINDNESS –
A distressed elephant balancing on a tiny stage (the story of my life)

I chose these four songs because they seemed to hold together as a set of love songs, each shot through with its own dark and impossible thread. I hope you like them.´

- Nick Cave
