Kate Bush tells the BBC: ‘I haven’t written a song for ages’

Kate-Bush

In a new interview for BBC 6 Music to promote her new live album, Kate Bush tells Mat Everitt: “I haven’t written a song for ages” adding that she “hasn’t been writing” at all since the Before The Dawn shows over two years ago.

When quizzed as to why, she says she has been “putting a live album together” but stresses she hasn’t retired, describing her situation as a recording artist as not a “full stop”, but rather a “big comma”.

Reflecting back on the concerts, Kate said that after doing two albums [2011’s Director’s Cut and 50 Words For Snow) in “quite quick succession” she “felt like doing something different, that wasn’t going to mean sitting in the studio for a couple of years, just putting an album together”.

She also admitted to being “terrified” of doing live work as a performer, again. You can hear the full hour-long interview at 1pm on Sunday 20th November on BBC Radio 6 Music, but for now the six-minute preview is below.

SDE will be publishing an interview with Before The Dawn guitarist David Rhodes in the near future. The live album is released on 25 November 2016.
