Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds are finally following 2005’s first collection.

A second compilation of B-sides and rarities from Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds will be released on October 22nd via double vinyl, double CD, deluxe double CD and digital formats.

Compiled by Cave and Warren Ellis, it picks the lesser told story up in 2006 and brings things up to 2020 through 27 tracks which include the first recordings of Skeleton Tree, Girl In Amber and Bright Horses.

“I always liked the original B-Sides & Rarities more than any of our other albums,” Cave says. “It’s the only one I’d listen to willingly. It seems more relaxed, even a bit nonsensical in places, but with some beautiful songs throughout.”

“There is something, too, about the smallness of certain songs that is closer to their original spirit. B-Sides & Rarities Part II continues this strange and beautiful collection of lost songs from The Bad Seeds.”

” I love the final side of the last disc because it reveals the small and fragile beginnings of some of my favourite Bad Seeds songs. ‘Waiting For You’ complete with bizarre ‘canning factory’ rhythm track, a gorgeous ‘Life Per Se’ deemed too sad for Skeleton Tree, and ‘Earthlings’ that some consider the finest track of the Ghosteen sessions.”
