To accompany the live single of ‘And Dream Of Sheep’, originally recorded on Hounds Of Love in 1985 and performed at Kate Bush’s 22 concert run in London of Before The Dawn, which is released as on Friday as a triple album.
This film was made Kate performed live in a huge water tank at Pinewood Studios. A day of filming lead to mild hypothermia on day one but she soldiered on. The film was projected during Before The Dawn.

After airing in the Olympics closing ceremony in London last night, a new version of one of the greatest songs of all-time, ‘Running Up That Hill’ was released. Kate Bush’s 2012 remix is modelled on the 1986 12″ single remix and features re-recorded lead vocals by Bush, scaled down to fit her current lower vocal range. Buy it, I just did.
I hope you all enjoyed the remix of Running Up That Hill this evening at the Olympics Closing Ceremony. They certainly put on a brilliant show. Kate
Super Mom is a free download mixtape from The Very Best that coincided with Mother’s Day in the U.S. Apart from the title though, that’s where the tie-in ends as these 12 tracks are just fun Esau Mwamwaya-led African slanted versions of tracks from Cee-Lo, Kanye, Rusko, Billy Idol, LCD Soundsystem and Kate Bush among others.
