In December 2021 Nell & The Flaming Lips digitally released Where the Viaduct Looms, an album of Nick Cave covers, to much acclaim. A year later the album is at last coming out on vinyl, on 16th December via Bella Union.

Where the Viaduct Looms comprises nine Nick Cave cover versions with vocals and instrumentation by Nell Smith and instrumentation and production by The Flaming Lips. The album was mastered by Dave Fridmann at Tarbox Road Studios.

“US teen Nell Smith’s glassy sweetness is a great fit for the Lips on a Nick Cave covers LP. The more gothic the song (Girl In Amber, Red Right Hand) the better the interpretation.” MOJO

“This sweetly bizarre experiment pays off... Drenched in electronic buzz and psychedelic fuzz, these shimmery reworkings of Cave classics are pleasingly free of both solemn reverence and ironic kitsch.” Uncut

“Cave’s glowering menace acquires a new, lighter prettiness when his apocalyptic words are delivered in Nell’s high, youthful voice, drenched in echo and backed by the Lips’ familiar woozy electronic rock.” Evening Standard – 4 stars ****
