Rumours circulate after a remix of 'Running Up That Hill' is listed on Amazon for release on Sunday

Kate Bush to play Olympic closing ceremony?
A remix of Kate Bush track 'Running Up That Hill' which appeared on Amazon yesterday has sparked rumours that the singer may be performing at the Olympic closing ceremony.

The page on Amazon, which has since been deleted, showed a 2012 remix of the track listed for Sunday (August 12) to coincide with the Olympic closing ceremony. You can see the artwork for the track above.

'A Symphony Of British Music: Music For The Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games', an album containing music performed on the final night, will be released digitally on August 12. A spokesperson for Kate Bush declined to comment on whether the track was part of this soundtrack.

The famously reclusive singer has not toured since 1979, however has recently hinted at a live return: "Maybe I will do some shows some day. I'd like to think so before I get too ancient - turn up with me Zimmer frame," she said.

The singer released her last album, '50 Words For Snow' at the end of the last year. The record was her second release of 2011, following from 'Director's Cut'. It is the tenth album of her career.

While the line-up for the closing ceremony is a strictly guarded secret, Muse, Ed Sheeran and George Micheal have all announced that they will be performing, with rumours also circulating that the Spice Girls, Elbow, The Who and Madness will perform.
