The super deluxe edition of Push The Sky Away is the latest collaboration between THS and Nick Cave. The bespoke linen bound box set contains a very special notebook which is an anatomy of the album, song by song. The multitude of written notes provide a detailed dissection of each song, 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.
In what is probably the most complex print project the studio has ever undertaken, we painstakingly reproduced every hand glued note, typewritten insertion and rubber stamp from Nick’s original note books. Each book was carefully deconstructed, each separate element scanned, cleaned and then the whole thing re-assembled by hand (yes, every edition). The final result is a beautiful piece of print brimming with fascination and intrigue.
