If you were unlucky enough to miss the screening of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ Distant Sky back in April, then there’s good news in the pipeline, with a select few live tracks set to be released on a new live EP later this year.

Back in February, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds announced the release of Distant Sky, a concert film which captured the band’s October performance in Copenhagen, Denmark as part of their highly-emotional Skeleton Tree tour last year.

A stunning performance, the film was released as part of a ‘one night only’ screening in cinemas around the world, and as yet there’s no word as to whether it will receive a physical release at some point.

However, for those who missed out, the group have announced that a selection of tracks from the gig will be released on a new EP, to be released later this year.

Scheduled for a September 28th release date, the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Live In Copenhagen EP collects for tracks from the group’s Denmark concert, with ‘Jubilee Street’, ‘Distant Sky’, ‘From Her To Eternity’, and the classic ‘The Mercy Seat’ all featured on the release.

This is just another chapter in what is turning into a busy year for Nick Cave, with the indie-rocker reuniting with Kylie Minogue to perform ‘Where The Wild Roses Grow’ in London recently, and the announcement that he’s teaming up with Warren Ellis to provide the soundtrack to a new Serial-inspired TV series.

Pre-orders for the EP go up on July 9th, with digital and 12″ vinyl formats available. In the meantime, check out a preview clip of the title track, and the full setlist for the group’s Copenhagen concert below.
