Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds re-emerge with Push the Sky Away, the first recording by this band since 2008. Produced by Nick Launay, the album was recorded at La Fabrique, a studio built inside a 19th century mansion in southern France. The two video singles, “We No Who U R” and “Jubilee Street,” are both darkly beautiful ballads that harken back to the Boatman’s Call and No More Shall We Part, and also contain various loops and electronic textures by the band’s musical director, Warren Ellis.

The 15th studio album by Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds is released on their own Bad Seed Ltd. label and is their first album following the departure of founding member Mick Harvey.

Describing Push the Sky Away in the album's press release, Nick Cave said "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 heart-beat."

According to Cave, the songs illustrate how the internet has influenced 'significant events, momentary fads and mystically-tinged absurdities' and 'question how we might recognize and assign weight to what's genuinely important'.

The cover image features Nick Cave and his wife, Susie Bick, in their own bedroom.

“The album surprises continually, offering humor, crises and redemption within the sound of something as lovely and enticing as it is aggressive and challenging.” -

"Relentlessly arty, multimedia savvy and black-and-white bleak... here the moral and emotional desolation are coupled to a strong strain of underlying hope that builds into powerful and beautifully crafted songs. The subject matter might be stark and dark, but just listen to those beautifully measured chord progressions... [T]his is his best album since the deeply emotional The Boatman’s Call... For those who complain that nobody makes albums anymore, this record should come as a breath of fresh air, each transition, from chord to chord or track to track, is weighed with such precision and care. There’s nothing left to chance here, the composition and arrangements as surgically precise as the observing eye is unflinching... No matter how dense the music or the mix, each element is separate and purposeful, there for a reason... [T]he 180-gram LP sounds significantly better than the CD, with more body, separation, dimensionality, presence, color and dynamic range. It brings authority and humanity to Cave’s vocals, qualities that anchor and focus the music... Cave’s familiar concerns with personal flaws and weaknesses as well as wider human fragility blend perfectly with the sheer power of the music and production, making this both a great album in its own right and a fascinating foil for P.J. Harvey’s Let England Shake. Great British pop is alive and well, and on this showing it still kicks." - Roy Gregory,, 5/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sound
