Kate Bush is reissuing her entire studio catalog – including numerous rare tracks, B-sides and cover versions – on a series of remastered vinyl and CD box sets. The campaign launches November 16th with the first two of four vinyl packages and the first of two CD sets, via Rhino. The second wave of material arrives November 30th.

The art-rock icon personally remastered the material with producer/engineer James Guthrie, who previously worked on Bush’s 1985 LP, Hounds of Love. The singer’s 10 albums are spread across the three vinyl boxes, and the fourth features rarities previously unavailable on the format. Many of the records have been unavailable on vinyl for decades.

The original album art is retained for the box sets, though the first CD box includes redesigned art featuring elements from the originals. Bush’s 2016 double live album, Before the Dawn – which documents her long-awaited stage return after a 35-year hiatus – is available on the second CD box in its original master.

Of particular note for Bush fans is the treasures trove of rarities featured in the fourth vinyl box and the final four discs of the second CD set. Highlights include alternate and extended mixes (including a 2012 remix of “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)”), B-sides (“Experiment IV,” “Walk Straight Down the Middle”), demos (“Humming”) and a whole disc of cover tracks (Elton John’s “Rocket Man,” “Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”).

On December 6th, less than a month after wrapping the reissue campaign, Bush will release a book of her own hand-curated lyrics, How to Be Invisible, via publisher Faber and Faber.
