Filmmaker Andrew Dominik explains how he worked with singer in wake of the death of the Bad Seeds band leader’s son NicK Cave have shared the official video for “Steve McQueen,” a spoken word piece featured in the documentary “One More Time With Feeling” but left off the accompanying LP Skeleton Tree .

The black-and-white clip from the harrowing Andrew Dominik-directed film shows Cave and his Bad Seeds rehearsing the Skeleton Tree track “Girl in Amber” while the singer recites his foreboding poem in voice over.

“I’m a housefly called ‘God,’ and I don’t give a fuck/ Here I come up the elevator, 60 floors, hoping I don’t get stuck/ And everyone out here does mean, and everyone out here does pain/ But someone’s got to sing new stars, and someone’s got to sing the rain,” Cave says. “I’m the atomizer, I’m the vaporizer, I turn everything to crud/ I like it here in your flesh and blood.”

One More Time With Feeling arrived on DVD, Blu-ray and 3-D Blu-ray today. On May 5th, Cave and the Bad Seeds will release the box set “Lovely Creatures” , a 3CD/1DVD collection that culls the band’s greatest hits and fan favorites from 1984 to 2014.

One More Time Feeling is a feature film about the making of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ acclaimed Skeleton Tree directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford). Visually unique, One More Time With Feeling is a stark, fragile and raw documentary. Shot in 3D, color and black & white, the film probes the deeply personal circumstances surrounding the making of Skeleton Tree (the band’s 16th studio album) and features interviews and live performances by the band in the studio, along with interjected voice-over commentary by Nick Cave. This double-disc release features three exclusive short films from Andrew Dominik.
