Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’s Atmospheric “Far from Men” Score Set for Release
The duo’s latest cinematic collaboration is an accompaniment to David Oelhoffen’s adaptation of an Albert Camus story.
If you were disappointed to hear that Nick Cave’s upcoming release—a book of poetry written on airplane barf bags—has no musical component to it, then perhaps his latest project—a soundtrack for the upcoming film Far from Men—may present the perfect solution.
As he has in the past for films like The Proposition and The Road, Cave recently teamed up with fellow Bad Seed Warren Ellis to craft a tense, atmospheric film score, this time for David Oelhoffen’s neo-Western drama based on Albert Camus’s short story “The Guest.” The film stars Viggo Mortensen (who is apparently fluent in French) as Daru, a school teacher caught in the middle of the Algerian War in 1954. And if the trailer is any indication, it is not going to be a lighthearted affair.
Following that film’s limited North American release on May 1, the soundtrack will be available through Bad Seeds Ltd. on May 19 for you to subsequently dramatize the hell out of your daily commute.
The soundtrack to Far from Men is out on May 19 via Bad Seeds Ltd.
