The Sydney Opera House and agency Three Drunk Monkeys bring together some of the world's best artists to perform "The Ship Song." The effort is meant to showcase the Opera House as a contemporary cultural hub, and over a 10-month period, shot artists and groups performing at the center--including Neil Finn, Sarah Blasko and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra--singing the Nick Cave ballad.

The artists were shot moments before they began their performances at the House and accompanying the shots is footage from the rehearsal rooms and backstage areas of the Australian landmark.

Along with the video is a microsite as well as a 30-minute documentary narrated by actor Guy Pearce that will air this month.
