Nick Cave: "Well, if I were to use that threadbare metaphor of albums being like children, then 'Push the sky away' is the ghost-baby in the incubator and Warren’s loops are its tiny, trembling heart-beat..."
"I enter the studio with a handful of ideas, unformed and pupal; it’s the Bad Seeds that transform them into things of wonder. Ask anyone who has seen them at work. They are unlike any other band on earth for pure, instinctive inventiveness... I don’t know, this record just seems new, you know, but new in an old school kind of way."
