Idiot Prayer is a sombre, intimate and mesmerising live recording of Nick Cave's intimate solo piano show, recorded at Alexandra Palace's West Hall during lockdown and featuring 21 career-spanning tracks.

These unique reinterpretations received effusive praise from any and all who bore witness. This is so much more than a live album or a live performance - these reinterpretations change the colour, tone and feel of every song in a way that proves that cave is the finest songwriter of his (or, perhaps, any other) generation.

"Cave's solo live stream could be the most the beautiful and sombre performance he's ever given" - The Telegraph

"Cave's performance in an empty hall, with just piano and voice, seems to try and ward off the terrifying silence of the COVID-19 age" - The Guardian
