Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

“We No Who U R” is the first single from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds‘ upcoming album, Push the Sky Away. And a rather glorious four minutes it is as well. The project, which was recorded in a 19th century mansion turned
recording studio in the south of France – known as ‘La Fabrique’ comes out on 18 February and will be the group’s 15th studio album. Despite the 21st century text speak title it’s trademark Cave/Bad Seeds with its dark and mature yet melodic sound.
However a quick google tells me that the upcoming album is neither the all-out rock of recent Grinderman releases or the piano-led melancholy of The Boatman’s Call/No More Shall We Part/Nocturama trilogy.
With just two months to wait before all is revealed but as ever with Cave it will be worth that wait…

Meanwhile…

Tree don’t care what a little bird sings
We go down with the due in the morning light
The tree don’t know what the little bird brings
We go down with the due in the morning
And we breathe, in it
There is no need to forgive
Breathe, in it, there is no need to forgive
(again)
The trees will stand like ṗleading hands
We go down with the due in the morning light
The trees all stand like ṗleading hands
We go down with the due in the morning light
And we breathe it in
There is no need to forgive
Breathe it in, there is no need to forgive
(again)
The trees will burn with blackened hands
We return with the light of the evening
The trees will burn blackened hands
Nowhere to rest, with nowhere to land
And we know who you are
And we know where you live
And we know there’s no need to forgive
And we know who you are
And we know where you live
And we know there’s no need to forgive
And we know who you are
And we know where you live
And we know there’s no need to forgive
And we know who you are
And we know where you live
And we know there’s no need to forgive again

[Lyrics to We No Who U R by Nick Cave & The Bad
Seeds]

The band’s management have released Australian and American live dates so expect the UK to be next on the list…
