Nick Cave On Push The Sky Away And Excerpts From Berlin Concert

June 3, 2013 - Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds are back, minus founding member Mick Harvey on guitar, with "Push The Sky Away." We are going to hear live performances recorded in Berlin this past February. The elegant yet emotive performer sounds great.



Cave has spent time over the last year working with Grinderman, a very different and much rawer way of approaching the muse than his work with the Bad Seeds. As Nick says: “It was the mistress that saved the marriage.“ Today he tells us how that experience ended up making the new album more direct.

The Australian singer, songwriter and actor talks about his early days in Melbourne, Australia, and how he only began to take music seriously after failing in his second year in art school. The same institution recently granted Nick an honorary degree.

This session originally aired on May 3, 2013.
