Push The Sky Away, the new album from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, is a quieter affair than its predecessor Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! or the two albums that Cave recorded with his Grinderman band, but it’s not necessarily any more forgiving. Instead, Cave and his collaborators have crafted some lush, gorgeous songs that positively drip with filthy dead-eyed back-alley scuzz. The whole album, more or less, works as an extended hymn about being a dirty old man. We’ve posted the early tracks “We No Who U R” and “Jubilee Street,” and now the whole sticky thing is streaming online. Listen to it at The Guardian.
Push The Sky Away is out 2/18 on Bad Seed Ltd.
