SONG OF THE DAY Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Jubilee Street (inc live performance)

Last night I was fortunate enough to catch a Nick Cave concert, though it was only on TV I hasten to add! It was magic!!….plain and simple! (find this performance at the bottom of this page!!)

The concert was part of their 2014 US tour and featured the band performing 9 songs on the TV music series, Austin City Limits.  The hour-long set included tracks from their first album all the way though to their 2013 record, Push the Sky Away.  (Full set list: Jubilee Street, Tupelo, Red Right Hand, Mermaids, From Her to Eternity, Love Letter, God Is in the House, The Mercy Seat and Push the Sky Away. 

Jubilee Street was one of my favourite songs in this performance, but only by a smidgen, the whole set was glorious!  The song was the second single from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds 2013 Push the Sky Away record and, for any Ray Winstone fans out there, featured Winstone in the accompanying video appearance – find that here. 

Nick Cave, in an interview with The Sun, said about this song:

“So let’s just say it’s a Jubilee Street of the imagination. But I can say, in a rather lovely, serendipitous way, that the song reflects how Jubilee Street used to be before they regenerated it — a very sleazy down-at-heel place.”
