Kate Bush Releasing New Single 'Dream Of Sleep' This Week

Kate Bush

(Prog) Kate Bush will release a new single on November 18 (Friday). And Dream Of Sheep will be available via digital platforms from 11.30 GMT tomorrow - with those who have pre-ordered her live package Before The Dawn getting the track, which originally appeared on 1985 album Hounds Of Love, instantly.

Bush performed the lead vocal live while filming in a water tank at Pinewood Studios to reflect the fact that the character in the song is lost at sea. Before The Dawn was recorded during Bush's 22-date residency at London's Hammersmith Eventim Apollo in 2014, and will be released on November 25 via Fish People and distributed through Rhino Records.

The shows were Bush's first full live performances since 1979 - and she recently revealed she was nervous about forgetting her lines onstage. She said: "I was terrified. The idea of putting the show together was something that I found really interesting and really exciting. But to actually step into it was something that I had to really work hard on because I was terrified of doing live work as a performer again.

"I was really nervous every night as a performer, but had complete faith in everybody on the stage, everybody in the team, all the sound guys. The most difficult thing for me was to be continually in the now because I naturally tend to race ahead in my mind. I think maybe it's that kind of primeval thing where you're trying to think, 'Can I get to that tree before the tiger gets me? Will I be able to get up high enough?'" Read more here.
