Kate Bush will invoke memories of her triumphant live performances at the Hammersmith Apollo two years ago, after the welcome news of the upcoming release of a new 30-track album. Before The Dawn will feature recordings from the iconic British singer’s comeback after a 35-year hiatus.

Comeback delighted fans after long wait

Admiring fans could have been forgiven for believing that the diminutive songstress may never perform before a live audience again after such a long gap. Yet the now 58-year-old experimental musician delighted the Apollo crowd back in 2014 and they will no doubt be eager to recall the occasion all over again.

‘Hounds of Love’ features heavily

Split across three CDs to mirror the trio of acts that made up the format of the concerts, Before The Dawn has been billed as ‘The KT Fellowship’ rather than being directly credited as a Bush release. Drawing heavily on the double platinum-selling 1985 studio album Hounds of Love - which topped the British album charts – Bush devotees will no doubt be delighted by the new project.

Eclectic musical career

Featuring tracks from across the singer-songwriter’s eclectic musical career, the album includes unforgettable renditions of songs such as Running Up That Hill, Never Be Mine and Cloudbusting and goes on sale in late November. For those listeners familiar with Bush’s more recent musical creations, Act three includes songs from her eighth studio album released in 2005 entitled Aerial.

Concerts sold out quickly

The series of 22-sellout shows at the Apollo endorsed Bush’s enduring popularity, with over 80,000 tickets being sold across the drama-filled performances in less than 15 minutes.

Bush enjoyed the experience

They also clearly delighted Bush at the time, as she reflected that they were among “the most extraordinary experiences of my life.” The 1987 winner of the Brit Award for Best British Female Artist and a former recipient of an Ivor Novello Award stopped short of committing to further concerts in the future however. For now, Before The Dawn will have to suffice.
