Kate Bush announces a new illustrated edition of The Dreaming

The ‘Escapologist Edition’

Kate Bush / The Dreaming Escapologist Edition

Kate Bush is following up her ‘Baskerville Edition’ of Hounds of Love with another illustrated vinyl edition of one of her studio albums, this time 1982’s The Dreaming.

Called, the ‘Escapologist Edition’ this edition represents the album in totally new artwork, which has been designed by Timorous Beasties, the same Glasgow-based design studio responsible for the new Hounds of Love.

This time though, there’s no gizmos such as flashing lights and solar panels, just new illustrated artwork for front, rear and inner sleeves picking up the same theme as the original, the escape of Harry Houdini thanks to his wife passing him the key to the padlock via a kiss (as told in the song ‘Houdini’ on the album). This means the cost of acquiring this is lower than the Baskerville Edition of Hounds of Love by a cool £100, and in fact the Escapologist Edition of The Dreaming can be picked up for the same price as the Indie Exclusive ‘smokey’ coloured vinyl version.

The Escapologist Edition of The Dreaming is pressed on 180g black vinyl and uses the 2018 remastering. It will be released on 14 February 2024 via The State51 conspiracy.

It’s available to pre-order via the SDE shop using this link or via the pre-order button below.
