Idiot Prayer is a live solo album by Nick Cave, recorded at London's Alexandria Palace on the 19th of June 2020. Clocking in at an hour and 30 minutes, it’s all about the songs (22 in total) and Cave’s commanding presence, by turns dramatic and quietly transfixing. The setlist leans heavily on The Boatman’s Call, his most contemplative album, but there are also several surprises. A haunting "Sad Waters" from 1986’s Your Funeral, My Trial, sounded almost elegiac in this starker setting. Then, a quietly reverent "Brompton Oratory" gives way to the extravagant lyricism of Grinderman’s "Palaces of Montezuma", one of several dramatic juxtapositions that highlight the range of Cave’s extensive back catalogue. The live performance was filmed in continuous non-edited form for TV distribution.
