Kate Bush to release new songs this year

More than five years after her eighth studio album, Aerial, Kate Bush, 52, has confirmed she is currently working on a collection of new songs which may form the basis of a new album to be released by the end of the year.

  However, a spokesman for the singer insisted that no album plans have been finalised. “There’s nothing ready until Kate says it’s ready. That’s always been the way,” he said.

  The last new song released by the ‘Wuthering Heights’ star was ‘Lyra’, written for the soundtrack of the 2007 fantasy-adventure film The Golden Compass. She has not sung in public since the birth of her son, Albert, in 1998.

  She recently won back control of four albums – The Dreaming, Hounds of Love, The Sensual World and The Red Shoes – which EMI originally released between 1982 and 1993. The albums are now expected to be re-issued later this year.

  Kate Bush was signed by EMI Records as a sixteen-year-old after being recommended by Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour. In 1978, at the age of 19, she topped the UK Singles chart for four weeks with her debut single ‘Wuthering Heights’ – becoming the first woman to have a UK Number One with a self-written song.

  After her 1979 tour – the only concert tour of her career – she released the 1980 album Never for Ever which made her the first British solo female artist to top the UK album charts … and the first female artist ever to enter the UK album chart at Number One.
