Featuring Ray Winstone
Push The Sky Away Out Feb 19th
“Seven minutes of craggy and lecherous slow-burning decadence, and it’s every bit as stickily badass as that description implies.”–STEREOGUM
“Classic Bad Seeds—morose lyrics that seemed ripped from a Victorian-era man’s shameful diary entries, a sinister string section and Cave’s intense, tormented delivery.”–PASTE
“If the rest of the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds record sounds like… the previously shared ‘We No Who U R‘ and the freshly uploaded ‘Jubilee Street’—it’s bound to become one of the band’s most sinister quiet storms.”–SELF-TITLED
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds reveal the video to “Jubilee Street”, the first single from the band’s fifteenth studio album Push The Sky Away to be released on February 19th on Bad Seed Ltd.
The video is directed by long time Bad Seeds collaborator John Hillcoat, and features Ray Winstone who stared in Nick Cave’s and John Hillcoat’s award winning kangaroo western The Proposition (2005). The video was shot on location in the East End of London in December 2012.
“It was a real pleasure hanging around the set and watching Ray do his thing. He is a master. What a great actor. And of course, working with my friend and collaborator John Hillcoat is always a blast”–Nick Cave
