there's some other things happening before the Bad Seeds record, but we are talking about it and working it and writing stuff for it.

Nick Cave has offered a public apology to Kylie Minogue and Avril Lavigne for featuring them in his latest book, ‘The Death Of Bunny Munro’.

In the Bad Seeds frontman’s novel the lead character, Bunny Munro, is obsessed with the two singers.

Cave, who has collaborated with Minogue, told BBC 6music that he hoped at least she would not take offence.

“I would like to publicly apologise to both of them, especially Avril Lavigne,” he said.

“Because the writing about her is darker and more invasive I guess.
