NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS IDIOT PRAYER: NICK CAVE ALONE 

2020 live release. Idiot Prayer: Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace is a  concert film and live album by musician Nick Cave.  

It was filmed by cinematographer Robbie Ryan and features Cave performing  solo on piano at Alexandra Palace in London.

PRAISE FOR ‘IDIOT PRAYER’  

The Telegraph **** “Cave’s solo live stream could be the most the beautiful  and sombre performance he’s ever given”  

The Guardian **** “Cave’s performance in an empty hall, with just piano and  voice, seems to try and ward off the terrifying silence of the Covid-19 age”  

Evening Standard **** “Gravitas echoes beautifully in the void of an empty  Alexandra Palace” 

The Independent **** “’Idiot Prayer’ performance is stately and beautiful”  

The Arts Desk **** “The dramatic minimalism of this setting is perfect for an  expressive face, and such powerfully emotional songs”
