Kate Bush releasing new ‘Director’s Cut’ album in May

Plus new single due out in April

Kate Bush has re-recorded some of her old material for release on a new album this May.

The elusive singer is revisiting a selection of songs from her 1989 album ‘The Sensual World’ and 1993’s ‘The Red Shoes’. The new record will be named ‘Director’s Cut’ and will come out on May 16.

Rather than completely re-recording the old tracks, Bush‘s spokesperson said she has reworked elements of the songs with the aim of making the album an audio ‘director’s cut’ of her old material.


A reworked single, ‘Deeper Understanding’, which originally appeared on ‘The Sensual World’, will be released in April.

The album will be released digitally, on a CD, on vinyl and in a case-bound book.

Bush‘s spokesperson has said that the fame-shunning singer is working on further new material, although no release plan has been announced.

After the birth of her son Albert in 1998 Bush decided to step away from singing in public. Her last album was 2005’s ‘Aerial’.
