Kate Bush has announced that she will be releasing Director's Cut, her first album in six years, on May 16th. The record will be comprised of rerecorded, reworked and otherwise altered versions of songs from two previous albums, 1989's The Sensual World and 1993's The Red Shoes. Details about these new tracks have not been revealed, but Bush's statement says that the Director's Cut versions keep "the best musical performances of each song."
Director's Cut will be released digitally, as a CD in a case-bound book, a vinyl double album, and as a CD box set containing the new disc along with the original versions of The Sensual World and The Red Shoes.
The statement also mentioned that Bush is working on an album of new material, her first since Aerial was released in 2005.
