Skeleton Tree is the sixteenth studio album by Australian rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. It was released on 9 September 2016 on Bad Seed Ltd. A follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed album Push the Sky Away (2013), Skeleton Tree was recorded over 18 months at Retreat Recording Studios in Brighton, La Frette Studios in La Frette-sur-Seine and Air Studios in London. It was produced by Nick Cave, Warren Ellis and Nick Launay

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ sixteenth studio album, Skeleton Tree, is out now on vinyl, CD and across all digital platforms. Skeleton Tree began its journey in late 2014 at Retreat Studios, Brighton, with further sessions at La Frette Studios, France in autumn 2015. The album was mixed at AIR Studios, London in early 2016. Classically trained Danish soprano Else Torp provides guest vocals on ‘Distant Sky’.

Skeleton Tree is the 16th album from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Tragedy tinges this record, as towards the end of the recording process, Nick Cave’s 15 year old son died. Most of the songs had already been recorded, but the theme of loss and death runs deep on this record. The accompanying documentary One More Time With Feeling is a more accurate portrayal of Cave’s devastation after the news. The film showcases the final stages of production on the album, and has been met with widespread acclaim.

The writing and recording of Skeleton Tree had commenced before the tragic incident, but the album was completed in its aftermath, and its specter hangs over it like a black fog. This is a record that exists in the headspace and guts of someone who’s endured an unspeakable, inconsolable trauma. If you try to listen to Skeleton Tree removed from its somber context, the album feels very much like a natural step from 2013’s Push the Sky Away, whose premium on disquieting, ambient textures and wandering-mind lyricism now seems like less like a momentary detour than the gateway into an intriguing new phase for the Bad Seeds. But where that record rallied for show-stopping epics like Jubilee Street and Higgs Boson Blues, Skeleton Tree’s drones and jitters offer no such moments of release.

Nick Cave’s first album with the Bad Seeds since the death of his son is harrowingly bleak, but heartrendingly beautiful. In Andrew Dominik’s uncomfortably riveting documentary One More Time With Feeling – about the making of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ 16th album – the singer describes a terrible event, which has become omnipresent. We can go away from the event but at some point the elastic snaps and we always come back to it. That event, of course, was the death last July of his 15-year-old son, Arthur, after he fell from a cliff. Cave has attempted to deal with his family’s grief in the only way he knows.

All the things we love, we lose, Nick Cave sings on Anthrocene, a dark and jazzy rumination on loss from Skeleton Tree, his captivating 16th album with backing band the Bad Seeds. The song as a whole is so understated and loose that the earnestness of his lyrics catch you by surprise. Here is the dean of literary gothic song-craft, a master of wordplay, symbolism and irony, baring his soul like never before. Although Cave still writes safely from the perspective of characters on Skeleton Tree‘s eight songs, the grief on each track is undeniably and uniquely his own. Last summer, while Cave was writing the record, one of his twin sons, Arthur, age 15, fell off a cliff to his death in Brighton, England.

Sunday morning, skeleton tree Oh, nothing is for free In the window, a candle Well, maybe you can see Fallen leaves thrown across the sky A jittery TV Glowing white like fire Nothing is for free I called out, I called out Right across the sea But the echo comes back in, dear And nothing is for free. Sunday morning, skeleton tree Pressed against the sky The jittery TV Glowing white like fire And I called out, I called out Right across the sea I called out, I called out That nothing is for free. And it's alright now And it's alright now And it's alright now. Top▲

Album · 2016 · 8 Songs.

Comments to album Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Skeleton Tree
Tiv
A 50 ex. ltd sold to raise money for children in emergencies all around the world... And now sold to raise money for some Discogs sellers (in... emergencies ?)... Welcome to modern world !
Cordaron
This is a pretty mediocre pressing with too much surface noise, and the XL outer sleeve is pointless. It's one of Nick's best albums though.
Garr
What is on this CD-Rom? Just the tracks? Any other stuff?
Whitebinder
Fantastic sounding LP. Very little surface noise and a standard size jacket. Very wide sound. The drums in "I Need You" really hit you in the gut.
Flash_back
Very good sounding pressing and my favourite album from Nick.
Jare
Bought mine from Amazon.fr. No issues, no warping, sounds great. Standard LP jacket.
Dagdalas
At first I bought a bad copy but after contacting with the company they sent me a remastered version with the standard LP jacket and it is absolutely perfect.
Jark
First play of this record was awful. Very noisy, crackle & pop's all over the place. A nasty fuzz on the high vocal notes. Experienced this alot of recent. I decided to invest in a record cleaner. This was the first one I Cleaned, twice both sides. Very impressed! The record plays fine now. There is also a warp on the outside of my copy, doesn't seem to bother the sound though. I have cleaned all my records now and all sound better, some very noticeably. I think alot of records are being sent out the factory filthy full of muck in the grooves!!
Pooker
My copy is just slightly warped. A few crackles on both sides. The sound is too much compressed. This pressing is a little bit disappointing !
Winail
His best album since the 90's and my vinyl copy is perfect. The slightly larger jacket is pointless and can be a pain to fit with your other LPs depending on where you store them.
Anarius
Received my copy today... Ugly warp in it. Asking for a replacement. Very disappointed.
Paster
So strange to read about all of these issues. I bought this in September last year when it first came out and my copy was perfect. Not a single issue.
Twentyfirstfinger
This might be the misspress version in 1 or 2 decades. Some few copies are fine????. Most of it are disappointing as we might read on here already . But: the XXL sleeve with his black totally shining material on it- this will remain the time in total (2nd version in a normal sized sleeve). Haptic pure. Promise. Besides all this: my 5th copy is fine, The wax looks like shit, but plays actually almost very fine. Side a better than side b.
Prorahun
I was wary of getting the 1st issue but the copy I got was absolutely fine. What a great album...
Kulafyn
I have the same problem. Side A is pressed in both sides.
Steelrunner
Got one of the dud presses. On top of being covered in glue, the inner sleeves were ripped somehow, it sounded like garbage and no amount of cleaning and elbow grease could get all the gunk off. Emailed the company responsible for pressing it, they sent me a new one, absolute perfect, not a single complaint, sounds beautiful.
Malien
So pretty much this whole album is nick cave talking to music. No effort put into these songs, try a lil harder, you ain't Leonard Cohen dude.
Ndlaitha
You're right, he's better than Cohen. Never connected the dots before reading your comment.
Jugore
Just picked up a copy of this yesterday - labels and sleeves are all in order, pressing is very disappointing, though.
Micelhorav
My copy has the label for Side B on both sides, but the pressing is correct. Has anyone else found a mislabel?
Gldasiy
I have the label Side A and Side B, but both sides are the same songs... I'm just looking for that error...
Shou
Anyone know anything about the release withe the center label being white and blank?
Jogrnd
Originally purchased this album in September 2016. My vinyl was warped, dirty, and scratched. Even after a good cleaning, it sounded like garbage. Skips, distortion, excess noise, etc. Exchanged through the Bad Seeds gmail account for a replacement copy. Took four months and three separate replacements (the first two replacements were the original pressing) and I finally struck gold on the third try...it was the repress. Repress comes in a standard sized LP jacket. It is not warped, looks fine, and plays beautifully. Finally. Along with Mitski's Puberty 2, this was my favorite record of 2016 and it was painful to not be able to listen to it.
MisterMax
I've got another issue with the vinyl. My copy isn't warped and it sounds lovely - but it's the same tracks (side A) on both sides. Has anyone else experienced this?
inform
New version arrived promptly the next day. Hats off to Kobalt for great CS
Nahn
There is a separate submission for this mispress now: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Skeleton Tree. At this moment it's got 0 Haves though. Add your copies there, guys ;)
Datrim
Here we go....emailed Kobalt at [email protected] and explained the situation. Got a response within 2 days."Thank you for getting in touch. Please accept our deepest apologies for the issue and any inconvenience caused. Can you provide me with your address so I can send a replacement copy out to you?"Winner winner chicken dinner......
Gerceytone
Thanks. Would you consider these worth keeping as rarities ?
Zololmaran
https://www.discogs.com/Nick-Cave-The-Bad-Seeds-Skeleton-Tree/release/9612176 I have just seen this appear... We're a record shop and have had 2 back so far.
Gugrel
First rule of CaveClub is .......don't talk about CaveClub......Ssshhhhhh :)
Dalallador
Hey guys, greets from Barcelona. Got the same problem, A and B sides are identical. I was wondering whether I should keep mine as well just in case it was rare, but it looks like there will be more of us. Shall we start a secret society of scrouges who hoped to become rich?))))
Siramath
I have the same. bought mine from FOPP in Covent Garden yesterday. I've emailed Kobalt Music Group but will be keeping this one. FOPP say they've not had any other returns and this is the only thread I can find online that mentions this problem. It's a keeper :)
Coiron
Are you swapping it? I think I'm going to keep mine in case it's super rare, haha. The downloadable version that comes with it correct.
Siralune
yes! from amazon ! sounds awesome though :) annoying as hell and with amazon on the line as i write these words.
INwhite
I just got a copy of this today, is warped but plays through fine.
Acebiolane
My version has the oversized cover. The record looked clean but was noisy. I did a double dog clean through the VPI and it sounds fine now. Note, I only found these reviews because I wondered if others had got noisy vinyl like me. Great music, wow!
Mayno
I had that problem too, the track Skeleton Tree even skipped the first times, thought I had accidentally harmed the record somehow - I don't have fancy cleaning-things - it still got a lot better with record cleaning solution. I usually don't use that stuff, because I've heard it's bad for the records, it smells like windex - but this time it really helped.
Breder
Hi. What is a double dog clean through the VPI?
caif
I also had three failed attempts with the first pressing, so decided to wait for the second pressing before having a fourth and final attempt. This is better, but still skips on both sides. It has come with a pronounced warp and whilst it doesn't have the tracking issues and surface damage the previous copies had, it is still strictly not acceptable as a new mint copy. I will keep this one, as I have got fed up of sending it back, and the store I bought it from, RISE records are losing patience too. Overall, I am very surprised the album was shipped with so many quality issues and that they were allowed to persist into the second pressing.
Mogelv
I received this copy from amazon uk. sounded clean, no distortion or anything. very good sound quality. BUT - as mentioned earlier - it was warped. so I requested rot the replace. the second copy came from germany. same sound quality and same warping at one place at the edge. it is not clearly visibly while you're holding it in your hands but when rotating on the TT you can see it pretty noticable I gave up and sticked to this version. sound is perfect, vinyl clean.
Thorgahuginn
Got this from a store yesterday. B-side label is wavy and is not properly attached to the record. Disappointed.
Shem
Got this repress after three failed attempts with the first pressing. Finally, a copy that allows me to enjoy this album. Any and all issues have been resolved. A nice, clean copy with excellent playback, no warp, no pops, nothing at all that detracts from the songs. Also the stupendously oversized cover has been reduced to a normal size. I have been reluctant at first after how miserable the first press has been, but this one is worth your money.
Budar
My initial copy came warped. When I showed it to the dealer, he offered to open a sealed copy and see if that one would be better. It was even worse. Then he opened yet another copy which was warped, too. Three copies of this second pressing had a huge edge warp. Don't be surprised if you get one of these. Optimal Media GmbH is usually known for good quality pressings. What a shame here. Soundwise this pressing seems to be nice and clean, though.
Zan
I received this today. Its nice and quiet . I did not buy the first pressings due to all the QC issues.very happy with this pressing
Aiata
The first bought copy was faulty (scratches on the A-side of the vinyl), so I exchanged it. The new copy is okay :)
Maridor
Just okay or good? Some commentators here still complain on warps or scuffs.
Captain America
I got my replacement record from Kobalt yesterday. It is the same pressing with identical outer and inner picture sleeve. There is now an additional plain black sleeve around the actual record. The matrix number is exactly the same. The good thing is that it is clean. I used a few drops of RCA disc washer liquid and played it shortly. No pops or clicks. Perfect!
Fecage
I'm glad to report that the packaging problems have been solved with the repress - it's now standard LP size with a much nicer inner sleeve. Whilst the vinyl is at least clean, the first copy I received had a visible area of scratching on track A3 whilst the replacement had a scuff across the whole of side B; both defects producing noticeable clicks on first play. Both discs also had edge warps.
Mora
I'm pleased to report that the repress that came to me is perfect - clean, no distortions, crackles, pops or noise.
Mullador
Yes same matrix numbers sadly, the only difference is the inner bag
black coffe
Does it have the same matrix numbers as the first copy?
Dugor
Sadly my replacement from Kobalt, whilst now being in a nice new plastic inner, still has the same distortion issues especially in the last track in the identical place. No repress :(
Malojurus
Comment re music only as my copy is fine. But damn this is a depressing record. Not surprising given what's happened to Nick in the last 12 months, but this is the inside of a confessional
Jia
https://www.hhv.de/shop/en/item/nick-cave-and-the-bad-seeds-skeleton-tree-500587?p=R873utAfter a lot of negative reviews they decided to make a repress on 04.11.16
ZloyGenii
After 3 emails to the distributor, Sandbag, without reply, I received another copy out of the blue today. No request to return my original so credit for that but... it's much the same. It looks terrible. However, put through my cleaner, it looks a bit better (nowhere near how it should look) but sounds amazing.
Dynen
Message from Kobalt Label Services / Bad Seed Ltd We are aware that some purchasers of the Skeleton Tree vinyl have experienced issues – the vinyl is dusty and / or marked. And in some cases we understand this has affected the playability. We have discussed this with the manufacturers and distributors of the vinyl, and it appears to be caused by issues with either the ink or glue from the print of the inner sleeve.In some cases it does seem that the problem can be rectified by cleaning the vinyl, however we know that this won’t work in all cases. If you continue to experience problems, and are able to, please return the vinyl to the store you purchased it from. If you have issues obtaining a replacement copy, please email [email protected] We apologise for any inconvenience caused, we want to do our best in resolving this issue. Kobalt Label Services / Bad Seed Limited
Ger
there seems to be a new release to be released in October 26.. check amazon.
Chillhunter
The record came dusty and covered with white spots, making it pretty much the worst sounding LP I have in my collection (and I have a few well-worn records). As a test, I downloaded the first MP3 rip I could find on the internet. It actually sounds noticeably better than the vinyl pressing.Avoid this pressing.
Ghile
My copy looked clean but played like it had been sandblasted. Even after a few spins on my Loricraft there was so much distortion, background noise, incessant clicks and pops and multiple tracks still had sticking points, that I had to return it. The album is terrific and it feels deeply disrespectful that the pressing is so woeful.
Jum
My cover is bigger than my other records, why is that?
Nalmezar
same with me, couldn't get it to fit in my shelves
Rigiot
It's probably because its overall length and breadth are greater than your other record covers.
Love Me
The music and performence is as always with Cave & co totally excellent, bu this so called "audiophile pressing" is the worst pressning I have in my collection! It's like a have dragged it after my car...on a very bad road...a rainy day.
Grotilar
Whoever pressed this LP needs putting out of business. It's a disgraceful product for a record that deserves so much more. Covered in marks and debris and grey/white wear spots. Everyone should return their copies in protest. If you can't do it properly, F*ck off out the game.
watchman
Can't really comment on the overall quality since both copies I had skip into infinity loop mode about two minutes into Jesus Alone. Those two minutes are poor beyond belief though, even after thorough wet cleaning. Not getting a third copy of this poor excuse of a record. An utter abomination. Too bad I won't be able to listen to my favorite album of the year on vinyl anytime soon.
Mr_KiLLaURa
My copy is similar to others who have stated things about poor quality. The vinyl looks dingy and has pit marks, like an old low budget Jamaican pressing or something. For the price this is absurd. I'm happy to hear that it isn't just my poor luck though, and that it is just a bad pressing. Great album, as others have said but piss poor quality pressing.
Zymbl
The artwork is a clear reference to Krzysztof Kieślowski's masterpiece Dekalog: One. Deep stuff.
Arakus
i thought it looked very much like Talking Heads' Fear of music.
Bodwyn
I thought it was a reference to Smell the Glove by Spinal Tap or maybe the Black Album by Metallica
Mitars Riders
The record was a mess, i've seen better condition in charity shops and car boot sales. I sent it straight back (and it's a good reminder of why I now try and purchase new vinyl from Amazon because their no-questions-asked, collect-from-my-door returns service is better than any other retailer). The CD is fine so i'll be content with that, although I might try a new pressing in future if feedback is positive. Well done to those who got lucky! a great album.
Andromakus
Quality control very poor, vinyl dusty and looks stained. Plays through ok but you expect better on a high profile pressing such as this.
Vozilkree
it looks like gzvinyls low quality, terrible pressings. Shocked when i see the vinyl. it has two deep scratches, dirty, baddest pressing
Cel
I am not normally ultra fussy when it comes to the records I buy. However when I opened this up it was the dirtiest record I have ever bought. No scratches or marks, just a marbling effect on the vinyl. The vinyl itself is very thin - almost like back to the early 90's in terms of poor quality.
Washington
No problems here. Quiet and clean pressing. Sounds fantastic. I guess I got lucky,
Ranterl
Terrible pressing, sent mine back - very noisy with background noise throughout! I can't speak for others but this was not a case of 'just run it through the Okki Nokki a few times'. Love the album though :-)
Adrielmeena
I can see why people are complaining. I was nervous about my copy, looked cloudy. I gave it a decent cleaning with a brush and record cleaning fluid and it sounded fine. There were a couple of clicks but only in the runout on the second side. I was lucky, they should be doing a recall/repress/replace on these for anyone who wasn't.
Runehammer
I had three copies, all the same, dirty, marked and scratched. Very poor quality. Hopefully, the second pressing will be better quality. Rise in Bristol have been brilliant about taking them back. Brilliant record, shame about the vinyl.
Skiletus
Mine is a very bad pressing as well , a pity for the high price.A good album though.
Coirad
Cleaning the LP with Record Revirginizer (great product) makes everything OK for me!
Best West
Vinyl arrived unclean, however cleaned up no problem. Production wise the audio is of excellent quality, creating a very well rounded & enjoyable personal listening experience. The sleeve is physically slightly over sized.
Coron
My copy is also dreadful and I have emailed Sandbag who were responsible for preorders direct from Nick Cave's website twice. No reply to either. A ridiculous £5.50 for p&p too.Very poor.
Xurad
Mine was ordered directly from the website too. Took a while for a response. When they did, they gave me a full refund (including their extortionate postage) and told me to keep the LP. Which would be great if the record wasn't so badly pressed!
Gardall
A lot of clicks, pops and filthy smudges. Low quality pressing.
Wnex
The more I play the record, the more cracklings come... Thinking about playing it 100 times and getting only cracklings and no more music... Very bad vinyl quality, but great record BTW!
Lamranilv
I guess I got lucky too. My copy is clean, flat, not eccentric and it sounds great. Much better than some of the 90's pressings of Nick Cave albums I have.
Umi
I also find the listening experience of very high quality. If I closed my eyes you could actually imagine been there.
BlessСhild
the pefect things: the XXL sized black, very shiny and totally heavy sleeve. And everything from the design is fine. IF the pressing would be also that fine: MARVELOUS, but: the pressing is very bad, to be honest, especially on the B-side! Have to bring it back . My record store had already to change several copies.
Kulabandis
Man, I guess I got lucky. My copy is super clean and sounds fine, and the jacket is pristine.
Ffyan
Add me to the list of bad vinyl. My pre-order copy just arrived here in the US, and not only was the jacket dinged in 3 places, but side A seemed to have something like paint chips on it, and side B came with a few nice scuffs. Absolutely embarrassing and a shame for such a brilliant and heartbreaking album.
Flamehammer
I can't understand why is it so badly done and so expensive???
Ka
Just got a replacement copy as the first LP had a bad jump during Anthrocene. The vinyl was filthy on opening, with a film that was really hard to remove. Also had real trouble getting inner back into sleeve. This just seems so cheap? Sound quality is awful on both copies but this replacement doesn't jump at least. Still debating whether to send it back and wait for a repress. It's such a shame that, after seeing the amazing and heartbreaking film, and the fact that the songs are brilliant, the whole experience is let down by cheaply produced vinyl...
Kagda
Love the album so ordered a copy despite all the negative reviews here. Should've known better. Jacket and inner are okay, save for a minor split seam on the bottom of the latter. Have seen cleaner records, though. While I could even live with having to clean the new record, the fact that it actually has no depth of sound is quite a letdown. It sounds like a badly done bootleg, tbo.
Bearus
After reading some of the reviews of the pressing, I headed to a local record shop with caution. They had sold 25 copies with no complaints from any buyers about scuffs, debris or pops, so I picked up a copy and headed home. At home, I pulled the LP from the sleeve and immediately noticed package debris/dust and a film from the pressing. I then put the record through two cycles in my Spin-Clean, let it dry and put on the tt. I did notice two or three pops over the course of the entire album, but otherwise it played perfectly. No warping on this copy either.
terostr
My copy is scuffed, dirty and warped. The inner has scuffed rubbed edges I can't even fit the inner back inside the sleeve. Really disappointed. Hopefully they will do a re press from a different place. Definitely recommend the CD instead for now.
Simple
My copy arrived dirty and scuffed. I cleaned it on a Hannl RCM and most of the gunk was gone. Playback was pretty decent. Might actually be okay after a few more cleanings... but brand new records should be pressed and packaged better than this. Totally agree that anyone getting a crap pressing from Amazon should return it. Only then will manufacturers begin to take quality more seriously. There is no excuse for a dirty and scuffed brand new record.UPDATE: Forgot to mention my jacket was also heavily dinged and the jacket size is non standard and too big-- so it does not fit in standard sized sleeve protectors either. Pretty damn pathetic quality. The vinyl does seem cleanable and improves with cleaning-- but it will take multiple cleanings to get all of the crud, gunk, debris, and god only knows what else that's smeared all over both sides off the surface. I would likely not have bought this on vinyl had I known it was this poor of quality.
Gavirgas
Mine also had some dirt etc but came off and doesn't affect playback. But it's also badly warped and plays with a very noticeable wobble. Very irritating. Doesn't jump or anything but I'm getting fed up with new vinyl being warped. Seems to happen a lot these days. Very disappointing.
Kirizius
Pops, crackles, and dust all over. I was hoping the other reviews weren't right. This is shockingly disappointing.
Huston
Glad to be the only one who got an undamaged and good sounding record!
Zbr
My copy is also scratched and dirty. Split inner sleeve on all sides. A VERY VERY bad pressing! Not recommended! ..Save your money and wait for a repress.
Corgustari
My copy has gone back to Amazon and I've had a refund. I had a similar problem with a badly pressed LP earlier this year and had three bad copies from Amazon after which they withdrew it from sale. If enough of us do that maybe the message will get back to the manufacturer and the artist that a recall and re-press is in order here. I don't do social media but someone needs to start a protest there.
