NICK CAVE Dedicates ‘I NEED YOU’ To His Two Sons

Last Saturday NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS performed at the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, Spain. Cave, who has 4 sons, lost two of them. Jethro (from his first marriage) passed away last May at the age of 31, and Arthur died in 2015 after falling from a cliff in Brighton. Shortly before he had taken LSD with a friend.

He dedicated his heartbroken ballad I NEED YOU, from the 2016 Skeleton Tree LP
to his other two sons, Luke and Earl, two Bauhaus fans who also played on Saturday.

Cave: “This is a song I want to dedicate to my two boys, Luke and Earl.
They’re probably over there waiting for Bauhaus to begin.”

Here’s the original studio version
and the accompanying video clip…
