Listen: Kylie Minogue And Nick Cave Update “Where The Wild Roses Grow”

    In 1996, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds released Murder Ballads, an obviously dark album from a band known for its inherent darkness. But the surprise hit from the record was “Where The Wild Roses Grow,” featuring a duet between Cave and the Australian pop star Kylie Minogue, establishing her as a mature singer after nearly a decade of dance-influenced chart-toppers.

    Now, the pair have re-recorded the song for Minogue’s new album, out Oct. 29 in the UK and Nov. 6 in the U.S via Parlophone. The Abbey Road Sessions sees the singer revisiting songs in the titular studio from throughout her 25-year career with the help of a London orchestra. Whereas the original “Where The Wild Roses Grow” boasted a dramatic string section, the new version is almost entirely acoustic with a few somber accents at the end. Take a listen below, and watch the original music video for the song as well.
