This is the first time Cave has spoken about his view on West, who released the gospel album Jesus is Born on Christmas day last year. The album, which was performed by the Sunday Service choir, signalled a more traditional approach to gospel for the rapper, following his gospel-influenced record Jesus is King.

The Red Hand Files was launched by Cave to allow him to interact directly with fans. The topics he addresses can cover everything from new music to his personal life, and even his thoughts on existential musicings such as: “How long will I be alone?”
