Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ ‘Hell or High Water’ Score: Listen to Two Excerpts from the Stirring OST

Another rather lovely thing from the longtime collaborators.

Hell or High Water OST

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” soundtrack is among the best, most frequently co-opted film scores of the last decade, and news of further collaboration between the two tends to be welcome among cinephiles. Their latest is David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water,” which premiered at Cannes in May ahead of its theatrical release next month. Pitchfork has excerpts from two songs.

“Comancheria” and “Mama’s Room” are the tunes in question, both of them readily identifiable as the work of the Bad Seeds bandmates. Of their work, Mackenzie told Pitchfork that “What I love about Nick and Warren’s film music is that it’s epic and expansive without being grandiose. For me as a filmmaker this hits a sweet spot where the score is able to have scale and emotion but not feel manipulative or overwhelming.” Full tracklist:

  1. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis: “Comancheria”
  2. Townes Van Zandt: “Dollar Bill Blues”
  3. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis: “Mama’s Room”
  4. Ray Wylie Hubbard: “Dust of the Chase”
  5. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis: “Texas Midlands”
  6. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis: “Robbery”
  7. Waylon Jennings: “You Ask Me To”
  8. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis: “Mountain Lion Mean”
  9. Colter Wall: “Sleeping on the Backtop”
  10. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis: “From My Cold Dead Hands”
  11. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis: “Lord of the Plains”
  12. Scott H. Biram: “Blood, Sweat and Murder”
  13. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis: “Casino”
  14. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis: “Comancheria II”
  15. Chris Stapleton: “Outlaw State of Mind”
