Matt EverittMatt Everitt says: “Kate Bush is without doubt one of the most original and gifted musicians and producers of all time. Having loved her music my whole life and been lucky enough to witness her live comeback, it was incredible to have an opportunity to find out her reasons behind performing again, how she brought a hugely demanding and ambitious conceptual vision to the stage, and of course, just to meet the person behind so many wonderful songs.”

Paul Rodgers, 6 Music’s Head of Programmes, says: “I’m delighted that 6 Music has the world exclusive radio interview with Kate Bush. This is exciting news for her fans around the world. I hope they will join 6 Music on Sunday 20 November to hear the interview and celebrate this cherished artist together in a live listening party. They can share favourite music and memories of Kate on radio and social media and hear the exclusive first play of her live performance of The Ninth Wave.”

    She sounds really happy and energized! Love to hear her laughing. I wish she’d put out the DVD, too, for those of us who couldn’t be there (which still hurts).

    Nice interview! Hope Kate will be inspired to write new material now all the work for the upcoming Before the Dawn album (which I very much look forward to) has been finished!

    Kate delivers the finest one-word answer to a loaded question I’ve heard, ever, perhaps: “No.”
