It's 10 years since the album, by Cave & The Bad Seeds, was released

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have launched a special website dedicated to marking the 10th anniversary of their album Push The Sky Away.

Originally released on February 18, 2013, the album has gone on to be considered a classic in Cave & The Bad Seeds' back catalogue, and the new website will feature video, audio, imagery, lyrics and exclusive merchandise related to the record. A February 2013 performance, captured at Los Angeles' Fonda Theatre, will also be debuted online and made available to watch back for a limited amount of time. The concert, which was originally streamed live on YouTube on February 21, 2013, saw Cave & The Bad Seeds perform Push The Sky Away in full, followed by a set of other classic songs.

In a new statement about the album, Cave said: "Push The Sky Away was the start of a new, wild adventure for The Bad Seeds. The record opened up a whole different approach to the way we created our music. It was the beginning of a way of writing – a kind of controlled improvisation. Because of this shift, the record was to some extent divisive – but it was the necessary reinvention that the Bad Seeds desperately needed.

"For that reason, Push The Sky Away continues to stand as one of my most loved of all The Bad Seeds' albums."
