Ahead of the release of Cave and Ellis' latest film soundtrack next week, take a listen in full below

With a healthy catalogue of soundtrack work already under their belt, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have once again come together, this time to accompany David Olehoffen’s Loin Des Hommes (Far From Men). Set to be released through Goliath Enterprises a week today (May 18), you can now treat yourself to an exclusive pre-release stream of the soundtrack, in full, above.

Loin Des Hommes marks Cave & Ellis’ fifth full soundtrack release, while the film itself was a triple prizewinner at 2014’s Venice film festival. The soundtrack provides a sprawling accompaniment to Olehoffen’s chronicle of Algeria’s war of independence, adapted from a short story by Albert Camus. You can watch the film’s trailer, featuring a small part of Cave & Ellis’ soundtrack, below.
