The Distant Sky: The Manifold Talents of Mick Harvey

Legendary musician and former "Bad Seed" Mick Harvey swings by the studio to disuss his forthcoming new album Five Ways To Say Goodbye, on May 10 via Mute, his first solo album in over 10 years.

Five Ways to Say Goodbye also doubles as the final release in a series of releases that incorporates his trademark blend of Harvey originals and interpretations of pre-existing songs, which continues on a productive streak of releases which includes a recent collaborative album with Amanda Acevedo.

The release also follows on from the recent Birthday Party documentary "Mutiny in Heaven", in which Mick played apart in producing.

Listen back to hear how, in spite of the challenges of the last few years, Mick Harvey feels as inspired as ever to release music.
