the jeffrey lee pierce sessions Check Out: Nick Cave and Debbie Harry   The Breaking Hands

As previously reported, Nick Cave, Debbie Harry, Steve Wynn, Mark Lanegan, Isobel Campbell, and more are honoring late Gun Club frontman Jeffrey Lee Pierce with a new compilation, entitled The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project. Available March 30th via Glitterhouse, the 18-track collection finds friends, collaborators, and fans reinterpreting and reworking previously unreleased or unfinished material from Pierce.

For their part, Cave and Harry have come together for a new cover of “The Breaking Hands”, a track which originally appeared on Gun Club’s 1987 album Mother Juno. As you can hear below, Cave and Harry’s reworking is a piano-driven ballad featuring strings, brushes, and bowed saw (via Pitchfork).

The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project is actually the second volume in a posthumus compilation series dedicated to Pierce. A third volume, entitled The Task Has Overwhelmed Us, is set for release in late 2012.
