Last year Nick Cave and Warren Ellis reunited to score David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water,” which premiered at Cannes in May ahead of its theatrical release. The duo released the official soundtrack to the critically acclaimed film this past August, and have now shared the music video for the song “Comancheria.”
The two-minute clip doesn’t feature the artists, instead we are shown slow-moving shots from the movie starring Chris Pine and Ben Foster.
“Hell or High Water,” which was previously titled “Comancheria,” follows two brothers who team up to rob a bank to save their family’s farm. Jeff Bridges plays an “almost retired” Texas ranger in pursuit of the crime doers.
Cave and Ellis have previously worked together on the soundtracks to the 2005 film “The Proposition” and 2007’s “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” Earlier this month Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds released their 16th album, “Skeleton Key,” and its accompanying documentary, “One More Time With Feeling,” directed by Andrew Dominik. The LP earned the singer/songwriter his highest-charting album ever, bowing at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 chart.
