Kate Bush reissuing 4 albums from 1982-1993, may also release new music in 2011

Kate Bush

The enigmatic and famously stage-shy Kate Bush is set to reissue four key albums — 1982’s The Dreaming, 1985’s Hounds of Love, 1989’s The Sensual World and 1993’s The Red Shoes — later this year as rumors continue to swirl that she plans to release brand-new material in 2011 as well.

According to Music Week, former EMI executive David Munns is now acting as a consultant to Bush, who recently won back control of those four albums from the label. No release dates or tracklistings have been announced for the reissues.

Earlier this month, a Bush spokesperson confirmed to the NME that “a release from her is likely for 2011,” adding that new music from Bush wouldn’t necessarily come in the form of a full-length album. Adding to the speculation, Munn told Music Week: “There are other plans but I’m not able to talk about them right now. There’s nothing ready until Kate says it’s ready. That’s always been the way.”

In 2005, Bush released Aerial, her first new album since The Red Shoes a dozen years earlier. Since then, the only new music Bush has released was the song “Lyra” on the soundtrack to 2007’s “The Golden Compass.”

  5. It is called Director’s Cut – It is a re-boot of most of the songs originally released on the Red Shoes CD- Except for an major rework on the song formerly known as The Sensual World of that CD of the same name. These were all redone with stripped-down arrangements with an old-school analog vibe. It takes some getting used to and technically it is not “new material”. But anything Kate does is special.
