Nick Cave & Warren Ellis Score Film Lawless Feat. Music From Emmylou Harris, Ralph Stanley and More

Lawless

Australian musical icon Nick Cave is taking the next step in his film career with the writing credit on the upcoming John Hillcoat film Lawless which stars Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain and Gary Oldman. This will be Cave’s first writing credit since the 2005 Australian “western” The Proposition.

And just to show how truly talented he is Cave is teaming with longtime collaborator Warren Ellis (The Dirty Three) to produce the music for Lawless. The pair have formed a new band for the project named The Bootleggers who will play country and bluegrass music to mimic the film’s 1931 rural Virginia setting.

Joining Cave and Ellis on a number of tracks will be a rotating cast of guest vocalists including Emmylou Harris, Mark Lanegan, Liela Moss (The Duke Spirit) and Ralph Stanley.
