The following note was posted at British songstress Kate
Bush’s Facebook page on Friday:
Kate Bush releases an
unusual new album “Director’s Cut” on May 16 on her own label Fish People, in
conjunction with EMI. On “Directors Cut” Kate revisits a selection of tracks
from her albums “The Sensual World” and “The Red Shoes”, a process that presents
a fascinating portrait of an artist in a constant state of evolution. She has
re-recorded some elements whilst keeping the best musical performances of each
song – making it something of a director’s cut but in sound, not vision. A new
version of “Deeper Understanding” will be released as a single in April.
Although written some twenty years ago, the song may be more relevant today
Kate is currently working on new
material although no release date has been set for this.
“Director’s Cut” will be released in
the following formats: Digital Album, Standard CD in a case-bound book, Deluxe
CD (three disc package, including Director’s Cut, The Sensual World and
re-mastered The Red Shoes) in a case-bound book and two-disc vinyl. Other
digital and vinyl formats will be made available on katebush.com. Details will
be published shortly.
Bush has also launched a brand new website, currently under construction
(they’re calling it “a holding page”) but featuring some artwork and a link to
sign up for the mailing list.
