  3. Photography credited to John Carder Bush. No one sees her quite like him . . .

  4. Andrea Rubera

    Anyone has got the article?

  5. John

    At last; a magazine cover!

    I thought for a moment this album was going to slip through without one.

  6. Brandon

    Does anyone know how to purchase this in the US? I really want this issue. Anyone know if it is selling on any fan sites, ebay, anything?

  7. Stunning photo by John Carder Bush.

    ‘glacial’ sounds a perfect term for a snowy, wintry album.
    The 21st MUST arrive soon. 🙂

    • I like “glacial”.

      • Me too, but it’s just every bloody review and article has used it so far and I just wish journalists would think for themselves (I know, I know, about as like as the ‘Tour of Snow’)

        • The one which is really beginning to grate on me from a certain sort of journalist is “Wuthering Heights singer, Kate Bush”. Come on people – that was 33 years ago!

          • Nanette

            Also, people from Canada and the U.S. are often more familiar with “The Hounds of Love”.

    Of course it’s her music and her mind we love; but she is so gorgeous. But she is my age, so there has to be a really, scary, painting hidden in the attic:) I agree with Colin, beautiful camera work.

  10. Is it a British publication? I’ve never heard of it! :/

  11. Rod

    You’re kidding, Mandy, Kate has graced the cover before and it has been the UK Music Magazine Of The Year a couple of times.

    I’m sure the Homeground team will know better than I think two of the guys, certainly Mark Ellen, stepped into Whispering Bob’s shoes and interviewed Kate Bush at one point -asking the usual awful questions about hair care and boyfriends? This is certainly a huge improvement on those days.

    • LOL no seriously Rod I have never heard of it (blushes with shame).
      But now that I know it exists, I shall be hotfooting it to my local newsagent. 🙂

    Don’t get me wrong – I love Kate, but has she packed on the pounds and is embarrassed about it? Every publicity shot she’s swaddled and draped in fabric of fur – or has her face painted into shadows. Kate, girl – we don’t care – we LOVE you unconditionally – we’re all a little chubbier than we were in our skinny minnie ‘The Kick Inside” days!
    Love “Wild Man” and I can’t wait to enjoy the new album xxxxxx

      I suppose being wrapped up goes with the wintery theme, but if you look at the photos released offically and in different articles and websites for directors cut, she’s relatively unveiled and unless they’ve done a mountain load of photoshopping she looks to be a healthy weight. Obviously it’s natural to gain a few pounds with age, but I wouldn’t say she’s gained a lot. As long as she still sticks around and produces great music, she can and should be able to do as she chooses as far as i’m concerned. This coming from a 17 year old male, pulling his hair out at a generation who, on the whole, couldn’t spot good music if it slapped them in the face!

    Man, what a beautiful woman!

    • Kent, a fan from way back when

      She Really Is. Her beauty transcends age and sexual orientation.

  14. Brandon

    Such a beautiful photo! I have it printed and hanging in my apartment now :). 13 more days….

  15. Steve

    Good point Greg, only seen photos from the chest up for directors cut and this album. It isn’t a problem as such, I guess kate just always brought an extra layer to her music through her body language and video performances and they have been sadly absent.

  16. Jeff

    great photo and coverage !

    want to pass along Kate will be interviewed on Canada’s most listened to radio show, Q
    – it was just announced today – check this site for date of airing –

      I took the liberty of emailing Jian Ghomeshi (the host) with a couple of questions, in hopes that he won’t ask the same things everyone else does.
