Kate Bush has announced she’s releasing a new album entitled Director’s Cut in May, featuring new versions of songs originally included on The Sensual World (1989) and The Red Shoes (1993). This news is likely send fans into a nervous meltdown of anticipation, being that this is the sort of ground that Bush rarely treads – plus it’s been six years since the last new material, the slick Aerial. What with Noel Fielding doing a fantastic rendition of Kate on Comic Relief”s Let’s Dance show (where he was criminally robbed of his rightful prize by some tap-dancing soap berks), it seems Kate is the name on every music fan’s lips right now. Nearly 35 years on from Wuthering Heights, she’s an enduring artist who never goes out of fashion.
