Song of the Week | Kate Bush
The Sensual World
In light of the release of Kate Bush‘s Director’s Cut, we can’t help revisiting this beautiful track, originally released in the late 80s. Taking inspiration from Jame Joyce’s Ulysees, the story goes that the Joyce estate prevented Bush from using parts of the text in the recording, forcing her to write her own, beautiful version. And aren’t we grateful for that fact.
Listen to the new album to hear Bush’s brave reworkings of her established works – and let us know what you think.
