Nick Cave Releases Song With Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

by Paul Cashmere on October 8, 2021

in News

Nick Cave has released a live version of ‘Push The Sky Away’ with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

The song was recorded in Melbourne at Cave’s Hamer Hall show as part of his ‘Film Music – Nick Cave & Warren Ellis ‘ event.
‘I never had more fun on stage than with the MSO…’ says Nick Cave.

‘Beautiful hometown Melbourne Symphony Orchestra – one of the best shows of my life’ added Warren Ellis.

The track will be included on the upcoming ‘B-Sides & Rarities Part 1 and II’ collection.

Vocals: Nick Cave Piano: Warren Ellis Background Vocals: Antoinette Halloran Performer: Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Conductor: Benjamin Northey Orchestral Arranger: Nicholas Buc Background Vocals: Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Chorus Composer: Nick Cave Composer: Warren Ellis

“I always liked the original B-Sides & Rarities more than any of our other albums. It’s the only one I’d listen to willingly. It seems more relaxed, even a bit nonsensical in places, but with some beautiful songs throughout. There is something, too, about the smallness of certain songs that is closer to their original spirit.

B-Sides & Rarities Part II continues this strange and beautiful collection of lost songs from The Bad Seeds. I love the final side of the last disc because it reveals the small and fragile beginnings of some of my favourite Bad Seeds songs. ‘Waiting For You’ complete with bizarre ‘canning factory’ rhythm track, a gorgeous ‘Life Per Se’ deemed too sad for Skeleton Tree, and ‘Earthlings’ that some consider the finest track of the Ghosteen sessions.” – Nick Cave
