Kate Bush is releasing her entire back catalog on vinyl. Per a website announcement, the legendary British songstress will reissue an all-encompassing set of remastered versions of her album discography in November.
From her astonishing 1978 breakout debut The Kick Inside and its fast follow up (just nine months later), Lionheart, to her first chart-topper Never for Ever (which spawned UK Top 40 singles like “Breathing” and “Army Dreamers”) to her self-produced experimental album The Dreaming and beyond, all of Bush’s critically-acclaimed material will make its re-release in 18 vinyl records, split into four individual boxes.
Box one of the first two boxes will contain Bush’s aforementioned first four albums and the second box will contain Hounds of Love, The Sensual World and The Red Shoes. Both boxes are slated to drop on Nov. 16. Aerial, Director’s Cut and 50 Words for Snow will make up the third box, with the fourth box containing remixes, rarities, bonus tracks and cool cover songs. Boxes three and four, as well as the second box of the 2-CD Box set will drop on Nov. 30. The first CD set will accompany vinyl boxes one and two’s release.
Also, notably included in the second CD box will be a live album, Before the Dawn. Kate Bush fans far and wide will undoubtedly enjoy this comprehensive music collection in dynamic, remastered form. The collection is available for preorder here.
Kate Bush is arguably one of the most revered British female artists in music history. Her four-decade-long career is packed with indelible hits like her breakout “Wuthering Heights,” with which she became the first female artist to have a self-written track top the UK Singles chart. (See version 1 of Bush’s “Wuthering Heights” music video above).
Later gems include “Running Up That Hill,” her Peter Gabriel collab “Don’t Give Up” and “King of The Mountain.” Bush is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, a three-time Grammy nominee and a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE). She’s known for her eclectic, signature art-pop sound and she’s influenced scores of aspiring and fellow artists across multiple generations. Stay tuned to AXS for more on Kate Bush.
