180-gram vinyl with album download code included

Limited edition 180-gram vinyl LP pressing plus a bonus 7-inch single with two extra tracks and album download code. A 2013 studio release from the veteran singer/songwriter and his longtime backing band. Push The Sky Away was produced by Nick Launay and recorded at La Fabrique, a recording studio based in a 19th Century mansion in the South of France, where the walls of the main studio are lined with an immense collection of classical vinyl. Push The Sky Away is the first album on the band's own label, Bad Seed Ltd.

"After 30 years and 15 albums, you could expect an artist to return to familiar topics. With Push the Sky Away, though, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds (even missing Mick Harvey) don't so much repeat themselves as they concentrate what makes them so essential into one tight album. Along with a special lyrical acuity comes some of the most textured music they've yet produced, making this latest album one of the strongest in the band's discography.

"The album's opener and lead single 'We No Who U R' displays the album's complexity. The band sounds beautiful, and there's a hint of maturity in the idea that 'there's no need to forgive,' yet the whole track turns out to be a threat. Other songs are at least as menacing. 'Water's Edge' rests on nimble wordplay and a dark eroticism (a sharp contrast with the exaggerated lust on, say, the Grinderman albums), but it becomes increasingly morbid and violent. ... Despite tracks like these, Push the Sky Away isn't an entirely bleak album. 'Mermaids' offers an broad-sweeping look at faith. The title track offers a strange sort of resistance, making an ambiguous statement that seems to push into the dark as much as into hope, but it keeps moving in its meditation." — Paste, Feb. 19, 2013
