The live album is set for released in November.
Kate Bush is set to release a brand new live album entitled 'Before The Dawn' this Fall. It's her first album since her tenth studio release '50 Words for Snow' in 2011 and documents her first live performances since 1979, taking place at the Hammersmith Apollo in London.
Kate Bush releases 'Before The Dawn'
The album was recorded during her much-praised residency at London's Hammersmith Apollo in August and September 2014. Originally meant to be a set of 15 shows, another 7 were added when tickets were snapped up with immense speed. In fact, all 22 dates were sold-out within 15 minutes. Certainly a more than welcoming return to the stage after 35 years.
'Before The Dawn' is Kate Bush's latest self-produced album that has avoided any of the re-recording techniques of many other live albums out there. Like the show, the triple disc CD and 4 vinyl set are split into two sections called 'The Ninth Wave' and 'A Sky Of Honey'. The show made UK chart history when it incited eight of Bush's albums to hit the Top 40 at the same name, and it even won her the special Editor's award at the London Theatre Awards, making her the only contemporary musician to win it ever.
Kate Bush has released live material in the past, but not since 1994's 'Live at Hammersmith Odeon'. Originally, the recorded live show was available only on her 'On Stage EP', released in 1979 following her last live series the 'Tour of Life'.
'50 Words for Snow' was her last album; a studio venture which reached number five in the UK charts and featured the single 'Wild Man'. The only other work she has done since then is on 'Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God Remix)' for Decca's 2012 compilation 'A Symphony of British Music'.
'Before The Dawn' will be released via Fish People on November 25th 2016.
