Kate Bush: ‘I’ve done most of the writing for a new album’

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Front Row’ last night, Kate Bush revealed that she had ‘done most of the writing’ for a new album of original material. The singer, who will be releasing 'Director’s Cut', a compilation of re-recorded material from her 1989 album 'The Sensual World' and 1993's 'The Red Shoes' next week, has said she is now putting together a new album of original material.

According to the NME Bush was unwilling to put a timescale on her fresh output, claiming: ‘Even if I was able to talk about it now, it might completely change in a few weeks and so would no longer be relevant’. Talking about her creative process the ‘Wuthering Heights’ singer admitted that she finds it ‘stressful’ that there are such long gaps between her albums, adding: ‘It's very frustrating the albums take as long as they do. I wish there weren't such big gaps between them.’

Bush, who was clearly in a particularly noncommittal mood, also replied to the question of playing live (something she hasn’t done since 1979) by saying that no live shows were planned. But, even so, she would ‘hate to say that I would never do any live shows again’.
