Nick Cave

Push The Sky Away


The songs on this album took form in a modest notebook with shellac covers over the course of almost a year. The notebook is a treasured analogue artefact but the internet is equally important to Nick: Googling curiosities, being entranced by exotic Wikipedia entries "whether they're true or not". These songs convey how on the internet profoundly significant events, momentary fads and mystically-tinged absurdities sit side-by-side and question how we might recognise and assign weight to what's genuinely important.

That does sound important. In a release, Cave said that the album "is the ghost-baby in the incubator and Warren's loops are its tiny, trembling heart-beat."

Deluxe CD edition features a hardback book bound in linen with 32 stitched-in pages, containing beautifully reproduced hand typed lyrics & band imagery. Includes album CD plus DVD with specially created visuals by artists Iain Forysth & Jane Pollard
