FIRST TRACK “WE NO WHO U R” & PRE-ORDER LIVE NOW AT WWW.NICKCAVE.COM

 

TORONTO, ON – (Monday, December 3, 2012) Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds have confirmed details of an upcoming North American tour in support of Push the Sky Away, the fifteenth studio album by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, to be released in February 19, 2013 by Bad Seed Ltd. on CD, vinyl, digital download and as a deluxe edition.

SharonVan Etten will support for the duration of the tour, which commences March 14 in Dallas and currently runs through April 3 in Denver. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Thursday, December 6th at 10am local time. Check local venues for exact times or visit www.nickcave.com  and www.aeglive.com or up-to-date information.

The announcement of the tour coincides with the unveiling of Push The Sky Away opening track, “We No Who U R.” the first track to be released from Push the Sky Away.  At the heart of Push the Sky Away is a naturalism and warmth that makes it the most subtly beautiful of all the Bad Seeds albums. The contemporary settings of myths, and the cultural references that have time-stamped Nick’s songs of the twenty-first century mist lightly through details drawn from the life he observed around his seaside home, through the tall windows on the album’s mysterious and ambiguous cover.

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 recognize and assign weight to what’s genuinely important.

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.

“We No Who U R” sets this album in our time; we’re living with the consequences of actions and innovations that seemed so progressive in the industrial era. There’s a calm assessment of the gravity of the situation, and humility. This whole album has a generosity of spirit that’s established here by a children’s choir singing “we know there’s no need to forgive.”

“We No Who U R” is available as of today, December 3rd both as an instant grat download with every pre-order album purchase via www.nickcave.com or iTunes and can also be purchased as a single download from all digital retailers.
