Cave and company recently released their latest studio album Ghosteen in 2019, which featured a more ambient soundscape, with various synthesizers complemented by Cave’s eerie vocal delivery. This double album originally appeared on YouTube in its entirety, where it was accompanied by visuals directed by Tom Hingston, and arranged by Yusuke Murakami, Markus Lehtonen, Aislinn Clifford, Amanda Tooke and Tiago Higgs.
Cave is also known for his unique perspective and at times controversial comments, as he recently called hip hop artist Kanye West “our greatest artist” when replying to a fan comment. While West is one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful artists in the past decade, he has also garnered a large amount of controversy due to his controversial political statements.
Weyes Blood will be embarking on her own set of headlining spring solo shows titled the A Lot Has Changed Tour ahead of these fall performances. She recently helped cover the Joni Mitchell classic “For Free” alongside pop performer Lana Del Rey and Zella Day.
