Founded by radio host, music producer, label owner and journalist, Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy, Classic Album Sundays allows listeners to fully immerse themselves into an album by exploring its context, the making of and a full replay of the album on vinyl. This edition focuses on Nick Cave’s tenth studio album, The Boatman’s Call.
Released in 1997, Nick Cave’s critically acclaimed The Boatman’s Call is a entirely piano based record which focuses on the somber tones of the song writing spectrum. Compared to the Australian’s post-punk back catalogue, the album is a intimate tale which looks back at the religious doubts, romantic affairs and affectionate moments Cave experienced.
