Kate Bush Signs to ANTI-, Releasing '50 Words For Snow' 11/21

"The most influential British female artist ever". - NME

"The sheer quality of the songwriting makes every recent female artist who has been compared to Kate Bush look pretty wan by comparison" - The Guardian

"Kate Bush is the greatest living British artist in song" - Mojo

The legendary KATE BUSH releases a brand new studio album "50 Words For Snow" on Anti-Records on November 21.

The album features 7 new tracks set against a background of falling snow, with a total running time of 65 minutes; through a highly evocative musical and lyrical landscape this haunting album once again pushes the boundaries.

" I can feel him melting in my hands...."

"50 Words For Snow" is Kate's second album release of 2011, following 'Director's Cut' which was released in May to massive critical acclaim.

The new album features a small number of special guest musicians including Elton John, Andy Fairweather Low and, on the title track, the British writer/broadcaster/raconteur Stephen Fry.

Kate Bush has been cited as a huge influence on a range of artists from newcomers like Florence and the Machine and Feist to established artists like Tori Amos and Bjork; she has also been praised by figures as diverse as OutKast, Tricky and Sex Pistol/PIL legend John Lydon who said; "Kate Bush supplies me with all the clues and it's up to me to put the answers together, and that surely is what we are all looking for".

Writing about 'Director's Cut' British rock weekly NME said; 'Kate Bush is the most influential British female artist ever. No Kate Bush - no PJ Harvey, Cocteau Twins, Bjork, Tori Amos, Joanna Newsome, Goldfrapp, Bat for Lashes; its not only female solo artists either - Radiohead, Suede and Patrick Wolf are all fans whilst her distinct falsetto is evident in the output of Anthony and the Johnsons".

The track-listing of '50 Words For Snow' is;

SNOWFLAKE
LAKE TAHOE
MISTY
WILD MAN
SNOWED IN AT WHEELER ST
50 WORDS FOR SNOW
