Kate Bush 2011

5o Words For Snow

No, we couldn’t believe it either – two albums from Kate Bush in one year. Kate released a brand new album: “50 Words For Snow” on 21st November 2011. The album was the second new release from Kate’s own label Fish People and comprised all new material that was recorded during the same period that Kate worked on her album Director’s Cut. “50 Words For Snow” features seven brand new tracks set against a background of falling snow. The album was yet another Top 5 UK chart hit for Kate and was showered with award nominations, scooping the prestigious South Bank award. The album is accompanied by three short films directed by Kate; ‘Wild Man’. ‘Mistraldespair’ and ‘Eider Falls at Lake Tahoe’. The album spawned two singles; ‘Wild Man’ and a double A-side 10″ vinyl release of “Lake Tahoe/Among Angels”. The total running time is 65 minutes and the track listing is:

SNOWFLAKE
LAKE TAHOE
MISTY
WILD MAN
SNOWED IN AT WHEELER STREET
50 WORDS FOR SNOW
AMONG ANGELS

    I can’t describre the feeling I get when I hear a new Kate release is around the corner. Not only do I know it will be great, but levels above anything else I’ve heard from almost every other artist since her last release.

    I am very impressed by the production and quality of Wild Man, and if it is an indication of the quality of the new CD 50 Words For Snow, then I for one am looking forward to being snowed in for the duration of Winter

    50 Words for Snow takes Kate’s writing to new levels – these are are not rock or pop songs but are ‘Art’ songs. A beautifully crafted set of songs that I feel has an inherent sadness about them. The more you listen to them the more you get from them. They are songs you have to listen to alone. I’ve already lost count how many times I’ve played the album.
    Thanks Kate!

    I can’t believe its been almost a year since this stunning piece of work was released. Kate has given me another album which helps form the backbone of the soundtrack of my life. They say man can’t make something thats perfect but Kate Bush can and does with the music she gives us.
