Nick Cave names new Bad Seeds LP


Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds – individually Grinderman’s Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos; plus Thomas Wylder and Conway Savage – are soon to release a new LP, and its title is ‘Push The Sky Away’. The band’s first album since 2008’s ‘Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!’, it was taped at La Fabrique, a studio built in a nineteenth century French mansion. Ooh la la.

Here’s what that looked like when it happened:

Praising The Seeds’ “pure, instinctive inventiveness”, Cave defines the new record thus: “If I were to use that threadbare metaphor of albums being like children, then ‘Push The Sky Away is the ghost-baby in the incubator and Warren’s loops are its tiny, trembling heartbeat”.

The LP’s release on 18 Feb will be preceded by a single, ‘We No Who U R’, which will be made available digitally on 3 Dec.

And last of all, a ‘Push The Sky Away’ tracklisting:
