Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, ‘We No Who U R’

Nick Cave Bad Seeds We Know Who You AreThe opening song off Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ new LP, Push the Sky Away, is haunting in its restrained approach — a fitting vibe for a record described by Cave as “the ghost-baby in the incubator.” Complete with flute and allusions to nature that recall 2004’s Abbatoir Blues/The Lyre Of Orpheus single “Breathless,” this cut finds him looping back to before the Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!/Grinderman era a bit. Who knows where they’ll go from here, but until February 2013, “We No Who U R” provides our first clue above.
