Kate Bush Premieres New Video Via NPR

Revered singer Kate Bush is premiering a new video from her acclaimed new album 50 Words For Snow at NPR's All Songs Considered today. The beautifully evocative cinematic clip is for her song "Lake Tahoe" and features stark shadow puppetry - featuring a dog moving through a stark landscape searching for its owner - perfectly compliments the music's haunting sense of dramatic longing.

Bush told NPR that despite the video's abbreviated running time, she intended the clip to be viewed as a complete work: "The video exists as a self-contained piece, it is called 'Eider Falls at Lake Tahoe'. It has all been created in camera with shadow puppets, one of my favorite art forms because of its simplicity. It is something that I've wanted to do for years and it was great fun to make."

To watch Kate Bush's new video go to All Songs Considered.

50 Words For Snow features 7 new tracks set against a background of falling snow, with a total running time of 65 minutes; through a highly evocative musical and lyrical landscape. The record features a number of special guest musicians including Elton John.

Critical Acclaim For 50 Words For Snow:

"An intriguing triumphant return" - Huffington Post

"Thirty years into her career, Kate Bush's sensual world is still enrapturing disciples from Fever Ray to Florence and the Machine, but there are no substitutes." - Spin

"Bush's most striking work since 1989's The Sensual World " - Paste
