Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds Announce New Album, ‘Push The Sky Away’

    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds‘ 15th studio album (and first since 2008’s Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!), Push the Sky Away, gets a release date: Feb. 18 in the UK, 19 in the US. The album, which reunites the Bad Seeds with producer Nick Launay (previous collaborations include Nocturama, Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus, Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!), is described as “subtly beautiful,” according to a press release issued by the band. Cave further described the aesthetic: “Well, 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 [Ellis] loops are its tiny, trembling heart-beat.”
