Kate Bush has issued a statement assuring fans that she isn't wearing animal fur in a series of pictures promoting her forthcoming album '50 Words For Snow'.

The record, which is her second LP this year, features just seven tracks and is due out on November 21. The singer wrote on her official website Katebush.com:

We have recently taken some photos and I just want to pre-empt any concerns there might be as I'm sure most of you will feel the same way as I do about wearing real fur. All the fur in these photos is synthetic. Best wishes, Kate.


Bush is a vegetarian and in the past she has been outspoken about fur coats. She previously told Johnrussell.name: "I don't wear fur coats. I haven't got one. I don't own one and I don't believe in wearing them."

The singer recently unveiled the first single - 'Wild Man' - from her forthcoming 10th studio album. The LP is 65 minutes long with each song set against the background of constant falling snow.

The tracklisting for '50 Words For Snow' is as follows:

'Snowflake'
'Lake Tahoe'
'Misty'
'Wildman'
'Snowed In At Wheeler Street'
'50 Words For Snow'
'Among Angels'
