It’s been rumored that Kate Bush would be releasing a new album this year, and that’s sort of true: The singer this spring will issue Director’s Cut, a collection that revisits tracks from 1989’s The Sensual World and 1993’s The Red Shoes.
The collection will be released May 16 on Bush’s own Fish People label, and will be preceded by a new version of The Sensual World track “Deeper Understanding,” released as a single in April.
According to a news release posted at KateBushNews.com, the new set “presents a fascinating portrait of an artist in a constant state of evolution. She has re-recorded some elements whilst keeping the best musical performances of each song – making it something of a director’s cut but in sound, not vision.”
The album will be released as a single disc or a 3CD set including remastered editions of The Sensual World and The Red Shoes. It also will be available on vinyl and download. Those two albums, along with 1982’s The Dreaming and 1985’s Hounds of Love, had been expected to be reissued this year after Bush recently won back control of the records from EMI Music. No tracklisting for Director’s Cut or the reissues has been announced.
