Nick Cave unveils cover of Leonard Cohen's “Avalanche” for “Black Sails”

PanARMENIAN.Net - From Her to Eternity, the first album Nick Cave released with his long-running group the Bad Seeds all the way back in 1984, was a fascinating collision of classic pop crooning and industrial noise, with a gothic mood set by the opening cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Avalanche” that transformed the pensive acoustic ballad into a ghoulish ode to self-annihilation. Recently Cave revisited the song, recording a new version for Starz’s pirate drama Black Sails that takes a whole new approach, with a spare piano-and-strings arrangement, Cave’s finely aged vocals, and a melancholic air, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The new version of “Avalanche” will appear in trailers for Black Sails and at the end of this season’s ninth episode.

Season two of Black Sails premieres Saturday, Jan. 24, at 9 p.m. on Starz.
