Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have shared a video for 'Vortex', the previously unreleased track that was first unveiled earlier this month alongside the announcement of B-Sides & Rarities Part II.

The video, which you can watch above, is made up of archival live footage from the band. Coming 16 years on from the release of B-Sides & Rarities, the forthcoming second instalment of the series features 27 rare and unreleased tracks from 2006 to 2020, including the first recordings of tracks such as 'Skeleton Tree', 'Girl In Amber' and 'Bright Horses'.

Cave and Bad Seed Warren Ellis have compiled the collection, which will be released on double vinyl, double CD, deluxe double CD and digitally. There will also be a limited edition 7-inch vinyl box set that collects both instalments of the B-Sides & Rarities series.

Bad Seed Ltd. will release B-Sides & Rarities Part II on October 22, 2021.
