Heard it on R2 this morning.
Not bad at all.
was a tad underwhelmed - sounded a bit too much like an outtake from Red Shoes.
You can listen to it by going to:
and skipping forward to the 38 minute mark.
Keep listening. By the fourth or fifth time, I'd noticed stuff that passed me by on the first listen. A real grower, as they say.
I like it - can't wait to hear it through a proper system and not PC speakers
I like it too...very subtle. Sound much better very loud (the drums coming in will sound great). Perhaps a little more backing vocal but still, very nice. I wonder what the video will be like and if she's directed it herself?
I've heard it so many times on R2 now, I have to admit that I am already getting a bit bored of it.
Well there'll be a double CD coming out in early November...should be plenty to digest then...
Ah, then you'll be sticking with your old Take That CD's.
You can download it now at itunes. Sound soooo much better than on the radio etc... Currently playing in VERY LOUD..
I really like the new single as well. It's a grower - first time I didn't think too much of it then I listened to it a few times on the radio and it became one of those songs that stays in the mind. Not a song with an obvious hook or one to hum along to but it has an ethereal/haunting quality which I like.
And it's a welcome return for you, Mrs Bush, you've been away far too long
My initial feelings exactly. But then, I couldn't bring myself to listen to her 1982 album, 'The Dreaming' for 2 years after I bought it ... and now it rivals the classic 'Hounds Of Love' as my favourite of all her stuff. So, this could be a grower as others have said ...
In case people don't know and if you're interested there's the first showing of the video to her single on Channel 4 this Friday (14th) at 10:40 (VIDEO Plus+: 277047). That'll be interesting!
Just a SHOUT OUT to the man who discovered Kate Bush......... David Gilmour.
Certainly instrumental in getting a recording contract for her with EMI by letting her record some tracks at his studio. Pulled a few strings as well. Though really it was whoever introduced her to Gilmour in the first place.
Interestingly Gilmour (whom I'm a fan of as I'm a fan ofPink Floyd) has appeared on three songs on two albums. Anyone know which ones?
Played guitar on 'Wuthering Heights', I think? And I know Clapton played on 'And So Is Love' on the 'Red Shoes album' ... but what the other Gilmour tracks are I'm unsure?
No, not Wuthering Heights. I think that was Iain Bairnson who worked with Andrew Powell - producer of Bush's first two albums - and worked with Alan Parsons, engineer of Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd which features David Gilmour!..
Well, to my knowledge his first apperance was on The Dreaming on the track "Pull Out the Pin". He does the male vocal. Then it was on The Sensual World on the tracks "Love and Anger" and "Rockets Tail" as guitarist. The Red Shoes also features another 60's guitar legend, Jeff Beck (Yardbirds etc) on the song "You're the One" which also features Gary Brooker of Procul Harum (Whiter Shade of Pale) and actually quotes a line from the song; "do cartwheels cross the floor" towards the end of "You're the One".
Right, that's my complete knowledge of Kate Bush trivia! Well, nearly!
