Hear Creeper’s New Nick Cave Inspired Single ‘Poisoned Heart’

A week before the release of their highly anticipated album, Sex, Death, & The Infinite Void, Creeper have shared their new single “Poisoned Heart.”

The track premiered last night (July 24) on BBC Radio 1’s Indie Radio Show with Jack Saunders. The song represents a completely different direction for the band sounding like a fusion of Gothic rock and country. Speaking about the inspiration behind the single, frontman Will Gould says:

“This song was the first we had written where we’d experimented with a baritone lead vocal. Inspired by Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave I attempted to sing in a way I had not before, combining this with a country sensibility we had established via a piano and acoustic guitar. Lyrically this song sits in the second act of our narrative, our protagonist is realising what it is to feel for the first time.”

Listen to the track below.

In addition, Creeper have announced a new podcast series about the making of their upcoming record title The Story Of… Sex, Death & The Infinite Void hosted by Giles Bidder of Mighty Moon Media. Listen to the first episode here. The band have also announced a Creeper Con on July 30th to celebrate the release of Sex, Death, & The Infinite Void.
