About this deal

or singer PJ Harvey, with whom he had a brief relationship around that time (as referenced in "West Country Girl", "Black Hair" and "Green Eyes").

But few could have guessed that Cave would bookend this period with what remains his most tender and honest record; a naked account of love and loss created in a period of personal and stylistic transition.

As the 1980s drew to a close Cave was deeply addicted to heroin and writing some of his darkest songs yet.

Recording for the album began at Sarm West Studios in London, United Kingdom in mid-1996, with "The Garden Duet", one of the album's outtakes, being the first song recorded.and " Black Hair" have invisibly possessed my sub-conscious - I wake up with these tunes and lyrics in head. He has begun to find a quiet grace, and perhaps even beauty, past all the darkness that's long consumed him. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Originally released in 1997, gone were the menacing, troubled tunes of yore; instead, here was a selection of graceful, minimal, melancholic numbers that saw Cave reflect on spirituality, loves past and present, and almost atoning for past indiscretions.
