Nick Cave has confessed his respect for Kanye West and names him the greatest artist of our time.

The singer regularly hosts a Q&A session on his website, The Red Hand Files. In his most recent session, a fan asked Cave whether he likes Kanye. Cave revealed that he is indeed a Kanye fan and that there is no other musician like him.

Cave explained: “Making art is a form of madness – we slip deep within our own singular vision and become lost to it. There is no musician on Earth that is as committed to their own derangement as Kanye, and in this respect, at this point in time, he is our greatest artist.”

Kanye is often very candid about his battle with mental health and his feelings about his fans and his religion. He holds nothing back in his music and as Cave explains, he is committed to exploring all sides of his mind.
