Next month Kate Bush will release Director’s Cut, an album wherein the venerable singer will “revisit” songs from her esteemed albums, The Sensual World and The Red Shoes. So, not exactly new material to speak of. The history of musicians reworking classics is plagued with puzzled fans and tarnished legends. Anyone up for a dose of “Don’t Stand So Close to Me ’86?” Right. So, the first single off Director’s Cut is one of my least favorite Kate Bush song’s to begin with- the fact that she adds loads of vocal mutilating auto-tune to it only hastens my disgust. And then there’s this cheesy, literal video with a man falling in love with a ridiculously animated pair of red lips representing the computer program that understands him like no other. Ugh. It does go a bit off the rails at the end, though. So, there’s that.
