The first new album in six years from Kate Bush — Director’s Cut, featuring 10 reworked tracks off 1989’s The Sensual World and 1993’s The Red Shoes — arrives Monday in the U.K., and, on this side of the pond, NPR is giving fans an early listen with a full-album stream that just went live tonight. The lead vocals and drums on each of the Director’s Cut tracks are all new performances (see details and full tracklist here), and some include new guest musicians. Three of the songs, including “This Woman’s Work,” have been completely re-recorded.
