Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have announced their soundtrack to the forthcoming documentary La Panthére des Neiges with a new track called “We Are Never Alone.” The soundtrack is out December 17 via Invada/Lakeshore; the film premieres in the U.S. on December 22. This version of “We Are Never Alone” is unique to the single release; the edit you can hear below will not be on the album.
La Panthére des Neiges follows wildlife photographer Vincent Munier and novelist Sylvain Tesson as they explore the valleys of the Tibetan plateau for unique animals, including the elusive, titular snow leopard. Ellis said of the film in a statement:
In April, Cave and Ellis followed up their album Carnage with the 7″ single Grief. This month, they announced more than a dozen 2022 U.S. tour dates. Cave stars as H.G. Wells in The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, a new biopic about the titular British artist.
