Update – it’s arrived.
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds recently announced their new LP – “Push the Sky Away” – due for release in February 2013. Well, Cave has just announced that the LP will be available in a “super-deluxe box set” (and there seems to be a lot of this “super deluxe box set action about at the moment!).
It looks lovely and costs £90 – pre-order it here:
Made to order super deluxe box set. Contents encased in linen bound lift-off lid box as shown.
Ever wanted to know how a song comes about? The very special notebook in this bespoke box set is an anatomy of the album, song by song. The multitude of written notes are painstakingly reproduced, a detailed dissection of each song, an autopsy with a runaway scalpel; dozens of unused verses, alternate song titles, rants and screeds, embarrassing digressions, photographs, drawings and scribbles that in a sane world should never see the light of day. Here Nick gives the listener an unprecedented insight into the mania of the songwriting process.
