The song was first recorded during the Ghosteen sessions in 2018 but didn't make the cut. Watch below.
Australian singer-songwriter Nick Cave has shared an emotive, previously-unseen performance clip of 'Earthlings'.
The track, which was written for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' seventh studio album Ghosteen (2019) but didn't make the cut, was released last year ahead of the rock band's B-Sides & Rarities Part II album.
Nick Cave & Warren Ellis recorded 'Earthlings' during the Ghosteen sessions in 2018, where it was fondly known as 'Krishna'. The song was then filmed by director Andrew Dominik for the acclaimed 2022 film This Much I Know To Be True but did again not feature in the final film.
Today, October 5th, Cave has shared the live version of 'Earthlings' that was shot at the Battersea Arts Centre in London for the first time.

In addition to the new visuals, an 'Earthlings' 7" picture disc is now available exclusively on Cave Things.
The Australian singer took to the stage at All Together Now at Curraghmore House in County Waterford this summer, where he delivered "an electrifying two hour set on the main stage on Saturday night. His energy was palpable and emotion visible as he treated us to a moving performance of 'Into My Arms'," Hot Press reported.
Nick Cave & Warren Ellis are currently on tour in Australia, with upcoming shows in Adelaide, Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne, among others.
In other news, Cave and Ellis recorded the soundtrack for Andrew Dominik's controversial new Marilyn Monroe film Blonde, starring Ana de Armas.
"Working with Andrew Dominik is always a challenging, but ultimately mind-blowing experience," they told Rolling Stone. "Creating the score for this terrifying and complex reimagining of the Marilyn Monroe story was no different, and, as always, it was a complete privilege to work with him."
Blonde is now available on Netflix and in select cinemas.
