Kate Bush new album in 2005.
Kate Bush has announced in December 2004 that her new album is almost finished and will be out in 2005: "We'll let you know when" She says: "I'm so pleased with everyone's work on this record. There are some lovely performances and I hope you will all feel it's been worth the wait. Bertie keeps me very busy, he is so much fun."
Known contributors to the new album include Mick Karn (he says he played bass on a track called "How To Be Invisible"), drummer Stuart Elliott and Jazz percussionist Peter Erskine.
The late Michael Kamen wrote the string arrangements for two tracks which will appear on the new album - she recorded what she has described as "some beautiful orchestral movements" with him and the London Metropolitan Orchestra at Abbey Road in October 2003.
Chris Hall has played accordion on one track. Classical musicians Emma Murphy and Susanna Pell have also recorded for the album. Del Palmer is said to be engineering.
Kate Bush has had her new recording studio serviced and upgraded and started recording in late 1999. On May 23rd 2002 Kate received the Ivor Novello award for Outstanding Contribution To British Music By A Songwriter. Kate Bush appeared live for the first time in almost 15 years singing Comfortably Numb as David Gilmour's special guest at his Royal Festival Hall concert on January 18th 2002.
