7digital What we said: Tempting as it is to join the dots between art and the context in which it was created, the relationship between the two is always much more complex than autobiographical readings allow for. And while it would be unwise to fully separate the follow-up to 2013’s Push The Sky Away from the tragic death of Nick Cave’s son, to suggest that Skeleton Tree is purely concerned with grief would be both reductive and untrue. Like all of Cave’s catalogue, his latest is rich in lyrical content, taking in everything from doomy, Old Testament-inspired imagery to themes of hope, lust and loss. It’s really the ravaged quality of some of Cave’s vocals that betrays the horrific circumstances in which the set was completed, but listening you come away incredibly thankful that he and his band persevered.
