Kate Bush Announces 3-Disc CD From 2014 London Concerts, Shares Live 'King of the Mountain': Listen
Kate Bush fans will be getting an early Christmas present this year.
The iconic singer has announced plans to release a three-disc CD and four-disc vinyl set recorded during her run of 22 sold out shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo in 2014. The collection will be called Before the Dawn and will be out Dec. 2.
The CD track listing is focused around two song cycles from previous releases -- The Ninth Wave, which was the second side to 1985's Hounds of Love, and A Sky of Honey, which was the second side of 2005's Aerial. Those two suites make up the second and third CDs. See the full track list below.
Bush's 2014 concerts were her first live concerts since 1979. They were also the first live performances of the Aerial single "King of the Mountain," which closes Before the Dawn's first CD. On Friday, Bush premiered the track on BBC 6 Music’s Shaun Keaveny show. Listen to it here, starting around the 47:39 mark.
