So, six days ago Nick Cave announced that those adventurous (or trusting) souls who pre-ordered his latest record with The Bad Seeds would get to hear the first track entitled ‘We No Who U R’ on the 3rd of December as a reward for their determination in acquiring as much pre-order swag as possible. Today is that day, and in a surprising move, he’s gone ahead and upped the thing to Soundcloud for those of us who didn’t pre-order but were definitely going to buy it anyway (right, guys?) to hear. The song itself is a surprisingly sparse thing of beauty, one that I won’t ruin with my awful sub-human words, offering only that it joins the ranks of great songs spelt in ridiculous ways, along with vast swathes of Prince tracks.
