With “Jubilee Street,” we’re now two tracks into the new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds record and it’s becoming even more clear that Push the Sky Away will be a clean break from the nasty and rowdy Nick Cave of Grinderman. Like first single, “We No Who U R,” “Jubilee Street,” is a calm and meditative number, skillfully orchestrated and exquisitely narrated by a man whose voice has the ability to twist a seemingly innocuous stroll into a tale of regret and deceit. The man does have a way with words, especially when his subject roams the urban underbelly of lost and forgotten souls. Press play, read along, and you’ll see what I mean. Push the Sky Away by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will be released on February 19th. The albums first single can be sampled here.
