With Stuart Elliott, Mick Karn, Peter Erskine and others she worked on "Aerial". The late Michael Kamen wrote the string arrangements for two tracks which will appear on the new album. She recorded what she has described as "some beautiful orchestral movements" with him and the London Metropolitan Orchestra at Abbey Road in October 2003. Chris Hall has played accordion on one track. Classical musicians Emma Murphy and Susanna Pell have also recorded for the album. Del Palmer is said to be engineering. Kate had her new recording studio serviced and upgraded and started recording in late 1999. Release date was planned at the start of 2005, but:
A double album entitled Aerial saw the dayligh November 7th.
It will follow a single, King of the Mountain, released on 24 October, with both the single and album produced by Bush herself.
The 47-year-old performer's last album, The Red Shoes, reached number two in the UK album chart in 1993. Her last public appearance was in 2001, when she received Q magazine's "classic songwriter" award in London.

King of the Mountain 

Could you see the aisles of women? 
Could you see them screaming and weeping?
Could you see the storm rising? 
Could you see the guy who was driving?
Could you climb higher and higher? 
new-album Could you climb right over the top? 
Why does a multi-millionaire 
Fill up his home with priceless junk?
The wind is whistling
The wind is whistling
Through the house 

Elvis are you out there somewhere
Looking like a happy man? 
In the snow with Rosebud 
And king of the mountain 

Another Hollywood waitress
Is telling us she's having your baby
And there's a rumour that you're on ice
And you will rise again someday 
And that there's a photograph
Where you're dancing on your grave

The wind is whistling
The wind is whistling
Through the house

Elvis are you out there somewhere
Looking like a happy man? 
In the snow with Rosebud 
And king of the mountain 

The wind it blows 
The wind it blows the door closed 

Written and Produced by Kate
Recording and Mixing Engineer: Del Palmer

October 2010:

A sound clip featuring about 60 seconds from “She Moved Through the Fair”, the duet that Kate (relatively) recently recorded with Rolf Harris, has surfaced on Youtube Ralp sung with Kate on Aerial aswell.

News March 2011.
Kate Bush releases an unusual new album “Director’s Cut” on May 16 on her own label Fish People, in conjunction with EMI.

On “Directors Cut” Kate revisits a selection of tracks from her albums “The Sensual World” and “The Red Shoes”, a process that presents a fascinating portrait of an artist in a constant state of evolution. She has re-recorded some elements whilst keeping the best musical performances of each song – making it something of a director’s cut but in sound, not vision.

A new version of “Deeper Understanding” will be released as a single in April. Although written some twenty years ago, the song may be more relevant today than ever…

And she is working on new material.

This from a film sound track:
