Listen: Nick Cave And Debbie Harry Duet On The Gun Club’s “The Breaking Hands”

    There’s a tribute album to the late Gun Club singer Jeffrey Lee Pierce due in early April, titled The Journey Is Long: The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project. The record features reworkings of songs originally written by Pierce from an impressive array of artists, including Mark Lanegan & Isobel Campbell, Barry Adamson, Mick Harvey and Nick Cave.

    The latter teamed up with Blondie’s Debbie Harry for a version of “The Breaking Hands” for the album, which is streaming in full below. It’s reminiscent of the work Cave undertook with Kylie Minogue on “Where the Wild Roses Grow” from his 1996 record Murder Ballads, complemented by a little bowed saw rising and falling in the background to complete the mood.
