Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Push The Sky Away

I’m not certain of many things in this life, but here’s one thing I know: I am going to enjoy Push The Sky Away, the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album, when it arrives next month. Cave has already allowed us to hear its first single “We No Who U R” (and showed us its creeped-out Gaspar NoĆ© video). And now we get a lyric video for the new song “Jubilee Street,” which, brilliantly, takes the form of a much-redacted CIA-style document. As for the song itself, it’s seven minutes of craggy and lecherous slow-burning decadence, and it’s every bit as stickily badass as that description implies. Listen below.

  1. Cave can turn awkward lyrics into a virtue on material like “We Call Upon the Author”. But sometimes he screws it up so badly I can’t even listen. A decent singer can always turn extra syllables into triplets or start ranting, but when you’re a few syllables short, you can’t fix that. At least he knows enough not to shit melisma all over the thing.
