EMI exec on new Kate Bush album: ‘We’ve been told to prepare for a November release’

Rumors have swirled all year that the studio-shy Kate Bush is working on new music — not just the re-workings that appeared on Director’s Cut — and now we have the most concrete evidence yet: Mark Poston, chairman of EMI Music Australia, tells a newspaper Down Under that he’s expecting to release a new Kate Bush album in November.

As Consequence of Sound notes, Poston tells the Star Observer — in an interview published Tuesday — that the Bush album is one of the releases he’s most looking forward to. Not surprisingly, there’s a caveat: “Of course, you can never be sure with Kate Bush. She does things at her own pace. But we’ve been told to prepare for a November release.”

In May, Bush released Director’s Cut, a collection featuring 10 reworked tracks off 1989’s The Sensual World and 1993’s The Red Shoes. Bush hasn’t released an album since 2005’s Aerial, which itself was her first since The Red Shoes. Since then, the only brand-new music Bush has released was the song “Lyra” on the soundtrack to 2007′s “The Golden Compass.”
