Nick Cave
Push the Sky Away

Being gigantic Nick Cave fans here at Key Production, we were absolutely thrilled when we were asked to manufacture The Bad Seeds' new release and we really did ourselves proud. This was Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ 15th studio album and was released in February 2013. A standard CD, two different versions of 180gm heavyweight vinyl, a 7" of an exclusive non-album track and a rather special linen-bound, hardback book. But that's not all! Our pièce de résistance is a made-to-order, super deluxe, linen-bound box set, which includes all of the above, plus, an exclusive 120-page replica of Nick Cave's handwritten, hand-stamped and hand-stickered notebook, a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by Nick and exclusive liner notes!
