Published Jan 17, 2011Last week, music website Wotyougot claimed to have insider information about a new Kate Bush album coming out sometime this year, but details were scant, at best. "We've just been informed that the Kate Bush will be releasing a new album in 2011, via EMI Records," is all that was posted.
While there was little to no proof that the arty songstress was working on a follow-up to 2005's Aerial, Wotyougot's claims had the rumour mill churning full force. It seems the site was onto something, though, since a rep for the singer has confirmed that some new Bush material will premiere this year. Whether or not it will be an album, however, is up for debate.
A spokesperson for Bush told NME that a release of some sort is likely to come this year, yet nothing is confirmed. The rep also stipulated that this doesn't mean a full-length is in the can.
No info has been posted on Bush's website, so only time will tell as to what the singer will drop on us. Considering she has shied away from the limelight following the 1998 birth of her son Albert, and factoring in that Bush took a 12-year sabbatical between 1993's The Red Shoes and Aerial, we will take anything we can get.
Bush's last released song was 2007's "Lyra," which was used in the closing credits for The Golden Compass.
