Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds unveil NSFW 'Push The Sky Away' album artwork
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds have unveiled the NSFW artwork for their forthcoming new album, 'Push The Sky Away'.

The LP will be the band's fifteenth studio album and is set for release on February 19, 2013. The cover art features a naked woman in a sparsely decorated room and a be-suited Cave holding open the shutters to a window.

The album follows 2008's 'Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!' and was recorded by regular Bad Seeds and Grinderman collaborator Nick Launay at La Fabrique studios, a 19th century mansion in the south of France.

CD, vinyl, deluxe CD and DVD and a special super deluxe box set of the album are all available to pre-order now at Nickcave.com. All pre-orders come with a digital download of the album track 'We No Who U R', which will be delivered on December 3.

The box set is priced at £90 and includes a CD album and vinyl album, a DVD with specially created visuals by artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard and two exclusive 7" vinyls containing non album bonus tracks. It also features a 120-page replica of Nick Cave's handwritten notebooks and a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by Nick Cave.

Speaking about the album, Nick Cave said: "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 [Ellis]'s loops are its tiny, trembling heart-beat."

The band have announced North American shows for 2013 and are rumoured to be playing the Coachella Festival in California in April.
