New Kate Bush video online, and could she be playing live?

Post categories:

Producer Will Producer Will | 12:21 UK time, Thursday, 28 April 2011

Over the last few days, one of the most exciting videos to have surfaced online is Kate Bush’s Deeper Understanding. The track comes from Director’s Cut, a collection of songs given new life from the albums The Sensual World and Red Shoes due for release on May 16.

The video for Deeper Understanding is directed by Bush herself with a cast including her son, Robbie Coltrane and Noel Fielding from the Mighty Boosh and Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

Rumours are also abound as to whether the spellbinding singer is going to perform live after a 30-year self-exile - and as a result of these developments we thought we would try and construct a playlist around her on Now Playing this week.

Please give us your suggestions – whether it is your favourite Kate Bush tracks, people she has worked with such as David Bowie, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour (the list goes on and is pretty exhaustive), or people who have cultivated the sound which she has so uniquely pioneered.

Leave a comment, drop us an e-mail, add to our Spotify playlist and make sure you listen on Friday evening between 7-9pm.


And remember to watch the video for Deeper Understanding, which is currently up on YouTube and read about her possible live return on Contact Music.

    Where to start? Kate's extraordinary talent and genius started to flower on 'Never for Ever' - first suggestion is 'Violin'. Punk rock and middle class musical forte.....'The Dreaming' is a study in album perfection......personally love 'Night of the Swallow' - Celtic longing and Kentish will. 'Hounds of Love' - Cloudbusting, RUTH, or Hello Earth. A few of my many favourites. X

    I love the way Contact Music print a picture of someone else entirely above the bit about her missing a couple of relatives out on the reworked Moments Of Pleasure!
