  • Kate Bush - Director's Cut

    http://www.katebushnews.com/index.php/2 ... new-album/



    From the press release:

    London, 11 March 2011

    Kate Bush releases an unusual new album “Director’s Cut” on May 16 on her own label Fish People, in conjunction with EMI.

    On “Directors Cut” Kate revisits a selection of tracks from her albums “The Sensual World” and “The Red Shoes”, a process that presents a fascinating portrait of an artist in a constant state of evolution. She has re-recorded some elements whilst keeping the best musical performances of each song – making it something of a director’s cut but in sound, not vision.

    A new version of “Deeper Understanding” will be released as a single in April. Although written some twenty years ago, the song may be more relevant today than ever…

    Kate is currently working on new material although no release date has been set for this.

    “Director’s Cut” will be released in the following formats: Digital Album, Standard CD in a case-bound book, Deluxe CD (three disc package, including Director’s Cut, The Sensual World and re-mastered The Red Shoes) in a case-bound book and two-disc vinyl. Other digital and vinyl formats will be made available on katebush.com. Details will be published shortly. (anyone spot the KT symbol on the album cover yet?!!)

        The study books are killing me, but they can not prevent me from visiting www.katebushnews.com once a day! Hope you're feeling great Blondini!

        I had begun playing The Red Shoes alot before these news, and now I am discovering a new side of The Sensual World. I am so excited, have nothing else to say really (cannot find any words). I just know she will change everything I know upside down, again, as always.

            I have a slight trepidation about this. Red Shoes doesn't really need reworking. Sensual (while a perfect album conceptually and in composition) does need a technical reboot for 2011 and i can see the possibillities of reinvention more there. Deeper Understanding was a stunning track - hope the single is at least AS good.

              Honestly, I am just excited for the new songs. I've played Sensual World and Red Shoes to death already. But yes, it would be a pleasant surprise to see if the songs have a new edge to them.

                  Blondini, I think the opposite. That it's The Red Shoes that could benefit the most from this project.

                  I am so excited, I can't think about anything else.
                  I'm playing all her dvd's 24/7, the albums...

                  I have ordered all my copies!
                  The 3 disc version is a must!

                    I agree. I take as a sample "And so is love..." from Red Shoes. Of course Clapton's guitar was great but I'd like this song to be reinformed with something more artistic and experimental. A sound like "?-pi" from Aerial.
                    Sensual World to me is still absolutely fresh, it's my third favorite album (after HOL, Aerial) and an absolute masterpiece!
                    But I'm sure she can still make miracles with this material!

                      ^I meant the production of the original Sensual World. Not the tracks/songs. It needs a reboot production wise - it sounds under-produced in 2011. Heads We're Dancing always struck me as cluttered for example and her vocal was buried in the mix. Was it remastered recently? Maybe that would sound better.

                        I understand what you mean. Obviously your point is the vocals and somewhat she can make these songs sound completely different. I like them like that I still feel that SW is still so fresh!
                        As for Red Shoes, it will be ideal to be more "Rubberband Girl" musically. Somewhat I feel the record was a bit conservative in terms of production. She can add so much in this material...
                        And I feel so impatient to a possible anouncement for The Dreaming. This album is simply perfect! I'd like to see a Director's cut there too! I'm dying for this!!!

                                I knew it...

                                "Reaching out for Mama"

                                I... I am under her spell..
                                This will turn my world upside down

                                Speechlessness. Dear Catherine, I love you
                                I cannot hear Trio Bulgarka in this preview which surprisingly doesn't disappoint me, because the new elements bring a new exotic atmosphere to the feelings of Deeper Understanding.

                                Hmm...... It's magic!

                                      Do you mean Kate's vocals?
                                      It does not sound to me as if she has re-recorded her vocals? Hmm..........

                                        She sounds more clear and not so unworldly. Well, at least to me, let's wait and see the final piece!

                                                      The length of this new version is about 2 minutes longer than the original!!!

                                                      So, does it sound like modern auto-tune for you guys? Some fans are complaining about that, such stupidity! It depends on how the artist use it, and honestly I did not think "auto-tune" before I read about it. Anyway.

                                                      She looks like Einstein in that picture, and indeed, she is!
