Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds unveil 'We No Who U R' video – watch
The track comes from the band's forthcoming new album 'Push The Sky Away'
Directed by Argentine film director Gaspar Noé [I Stand Alone, Irreversible[I] and [I]Enter The Void], Cave has said of the promo, which features a shadowy figure in a forest: "I love Gaspar's beautiful, haunting and thoughtful video."
The track is taken from the band's forthcoming new album 'Push The Sky Away'.
'Push The Sky Away' will be Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds' 15th studio album and is set for release on February 19, 2013.
It 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.
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 heartbeat."
The band have announced North American, Mexican and Australian shows for later in the year and are rumoured to be playing the Coachella Festival in California in April.
They will be playing European festival dates in the summer.
