Video: Kate Bush goes Yeti hunting in new 2½-minute ‘animation’ for ‘Wild Man’

Kate Bush this week premiered the first of three planned 2½-minute “animations” created to promote her new album 50 Words for Snow, which arrives next week. The first clip, which you can watch above, is set to part of the 7-minute “Wild Man,” and looks to be about a snowy expedition to find the Abominable Snowman.

As Bush writes on her website:

Hi everyone, I am delighted to announce the premier of our first animated film tonight. It only runs for about 2½ minutes but huge amounts of care and work have gone into this. I think it looks so atmospheric and has a beautifully crafted and unique look. It has been created by Finn and Patrick at Brandt Animation. It has been really exciting working on this. I hope you like it.

I want to say a very special thanks to Mike Solinger, the producer on this project. Without him this could never have happened.

I would also like to thank the Yeti who was the inspiration for the song and this short film. I hope it remains an enigma.

With very best wishes,

The other two clips are promised in the coming weeks, but you can catch a glimpse of them in a TV commercial for 50 Words for Snow that’s posted below. You can also stream the full album.
