Nick Cave told Kylie Minogue to "sing less".

The Bad Seed rocker worked with the 'Sexercize' hitmaker in 1995 when they released their single 'Where The Wild Roses Grow' and despite landing a Top 20 hit together, he wasn't overly keen on her singing.

In Nick's new documentary, '20,000 Days on Earth', he tells Kylie: "Sing less and tell the story more."

In the music video for their duet, the Australian beauty plays Eliza Day who eventually gets beaten to death by Nick, but the 46-year-old pop star doesn't hold any grudges against her singing partner.

Reminiscing about their time together, Kylie is quoted by NME Magazine as saying: "When I first worked with Nick it was tender and genuine. And then I saw him perform and speed-read his biography, and I realised that the person I'm watching on stage singing, 'From Her To Eternity' is very different to my experience with him. OK, so he did kill me with a rock - but you know what I'm saying."

Existentialist pseudo-documentary telling the seductive and quasi-truthful story of Nick Cave, starring and co-written by the man himself. With guest appearances from Ray Winstone, Kylie Minogue and psychoanalyst Darian Leader, it's a mischievous and fiercely beautiful amalgam which sweeps you up in its embrace before…
