Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds could pick up their third straight #1 album this week with their latest release, Ghosteen.

The group’s previous albums Skeleton Tree (2016) and Push The Sky Away (2013) also debuted at #1.
“The songs on the first album are the children,” said Cave of Ghosteen. “The songs on the second album are their parents. Ghosteen is a migrating spirit.”
