Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds have another track from Push the Sky Away to share today: “Jubilee Street,” where Cave sings of pushing his “wheel of love” uphill carrying a “10-ton catastrophe and a 60-pound chain” over a wistful, steady-burn backdrop. The lyrics are gorgeous and pleasantly tough to decipher, making the redacted facsimile scrolling through its video all the more apt. Unlike “We Know Who U R,” this one builds toward a nuanced, mid-energy climax in the coda — a good sign of the band’s organic approach to performance in the sessions. Give it a spin above.
