Primal Scream singer Bobby Gillespie recalled to Uncut magazine being in the audience at London's O2 Arena for The Bad Seeds September 2017 Skeleton Tree
tour gig. What he didn't expect was to find himself singing a duet version of this song with Nick Cave, a moment captured by audience members and put on YouTube
"He did his walkabout during 'Push The Sky Away,' Gillespie remembered. "He was in the row behind me and I grabbed his leg and said 'Nick Nick!' And he shouted 'Bobby!' and then pulled me up and had me sing. He did the line, 'and some people say it's just rock and roll, but it gets you right down to your soul,' which I love, then he passed me the mic. I had to hope for the best. I did my version of the chorus, and it was alright. It was amazing, amazing. I tell you, I was flying after that."
