Cave and Ellis have been making film music together since 2005, and Ellis says working on this project has been one of his favourite experiences ever. Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds are the first headliners of EXIT 2022 — they will perform at the Petrovaradin Fortress on 8th July.

Warren Ellis said that “there is something about the heart of this film that draws you in,” and that he thought that they made “one of the most beautiful films [they] have ever worked on.” The soundtrack for the documentary La Panthere des Neiges will be released on 17th December for the Invada label.

“I asked Nick if he could come in for a day to write a theme song and play some piano. He saw the film and stayed for four days. One of my favourite experiences ever working on a project. The stars are the animals in all their wild glory, as we have never seen them before, and man in reverence and wonder,” said Ellis.

The documentary will premiere on 22nd December in the United States. The plot follows wildlife photographer Vincent Munier and novelist Sylvain Tesson on the Tibetan Plateau, searching for the elusive snow leopard, an endangered species. In the song, We Are Not Alone Nick Cave gently sings about the magnificence of nature.

Incidentally, Cave recently released the long-awaited album B-Sides & Rarities Part II. This double release brought us 27 B-side singles and rare songs from 2006 to 2020.

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, one of the most original and influential bands in the world, will thunder from the Main Stage of the EXIT festival on Friday, 8th July 2022, and continue the tradition of historic rock bands performing at EXIT after The Cure’s unforgettable performance in 2019.
