NEW ALBUM: NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS
PUSH THE SKY AWAY - OUT FEB 2013
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will release their fifteenth studio album, Push the Sky Away, on February 18, 2013 on CD/ Ltd CD-DVD / Vinyl / Digital.
At the heart of Push the Sky Away is a naturalism and warmth that makes it the most subtly beautiful of all the Bad Seeds albums. The contemporary settings of myths, and the cultural references that have time-stamped Nick's songs of the twenty-first century mist lightly through details drawn from the life he observed around his seaside home, through the tall windows on the album's mysterious and ambiguous cover. The album trailer is now live below.
Push the Sky Away was produced by Nick Launay and recorded at La Fabrique, a recording studio based in a 19th Century mansion in the South of France, where the walls of the main studio are lined with an immense collection of classical vinyl.
On this album it's not always apparent what instruments the band is playing: they may be traditional musical instruments but other sounds are clearly generated by objects unrelated to musical instruments. What's being created is a collective musical language that's rich and complex.
Track one "We No Who U R" is available from December 3. The track comes as a download with every pre-order album purchase via nickcave.com or iTunes. "We No Who U R" will also be available as a single download from all digital retailers.
