Kate’s interview with Ryan Dombal of Pitchfork media is now posted:
“After more than 30 years of singular, forward-thinking music, Kate Bush is looking back. Sort of. The British iconoclast’s new album, Director’s Cut, re-imagines songs from her own The Sensual World (1989) and The Red Shoes (1993) with new vocals and drums mixing in with the original recordings. A few songs– including a glacial, near-ambient take on her classic “This Woman’s Work”– have been re-recorded entirely. Leave it to Kate Bush to subvert the typical aging-pop-star reissue cycle ….“
Best interview I’ve read so far for the DC promotion. Thanks!
Good interview. Glad to see someone finally asking different questions than the same old, same old.
Pitchfork interviews are always so damn boring. People should stop worshiping PF. On the other hand, hurray for Kate!!!
I’m really impressed with this interview, very different from most of the others for Director’s Cut. If I see another interview asking about a tour, I think I’ll scream! Thankfully this one didn’t.
I don’t want to see another interview that asks about the next album or tour. She’s said all she wants to say — move on! There are so many other questions to ask!
What a brilliant interview! So refreshing to read thoughtful questions and insightful answers – and glean a few new nuggets of information about Kate’s work. Too many lazy interviwers ask the same things which must be so frustrating for Kate as well as fans. My favourite “Director’s Cut’ interview so far.
I one heard an American journalist say that you get a good interview when you figure out what your subject wants to talk about. This interview is a good one precisely because the interviewer knew that Kate would want to talk about her music, not personal trivia. Ask the right questions, and (most of the time) you get good answers. Good job.
