Stream Kate Bush's new album now
Fans of British songtress Kate Bush can stream her eclectic upcoming ninth album,
Director’s Cut, on the US-based National Public Radio's (NPR) website.
Available as a live-stream on May 12, the 11-track effort features Bush’s revamped songs from two of her previous albums: 1989?s The Sensual World and 1993?s The Red Shoes. She re-recorded all of her vocals and the drums, but didn’t touch the instrumentation.
The album, her first since 2005’s Aerial, is set to release May 16 in the UK, May 23 in the US, and you can preorder the LP via Amazon.com. The album will stream on NPR until its US release date.
"Every new Kate Bush album I recall being released has been met with a reception akin to a new moon landing; reverential, awe-filled and cloaked in mystery," writes NME magazine. "The album is very much the Son Of Aerial; full of silence, space and maturity." BBC adds, "An artist reborn, Bush tinkers with back catalogue cuts, producing great results."
