    That's very sad. His contributions on those albums are astonishing. I'll go and have a listen now.

    Kate in the new today.

    Kate Bush makes second tribute to Emily Brontë with art installation
    Kate Bush is to make her second tribute to Emily Brontë, providing words for a permanent art installation on the wiley, windy moors that inspired Wuthering Heights.

    Bush will join the poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy, the Scottish makar, or national poet, Jackie Kay and the novelist Jeanette Winterson in a summer project celebrating the Brontë sisters. All four have been commissioned to write a piece of poetry or prose which will then be engraved on stones positioned over the eight-mile route between the sisters’ birthplace and the family parsonage.

    Winterson will celebrate the Brontë legacy as a whole, Duffy will celebrate Charlotte, Kay has Anne and Bush has Emily.

    The Brontë stones project takes place in the bicentenary year of Emily’s birth and, appropriately, the 40th anniversary year of Bush’s Wuthering Heights, the mindblowing song she released when she was just 18 years old.

    Bush said she was delighted to be involved in the project. “Each sister being remembered by a stone in the enigmatic landscape where they lived and worked is a striking idea.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    So a friend of mine just recently discovered "This Woman's Work" via "The Handmaid's Tale" and was going on and on about how much he loved Kate's RENDITION of the song having previously thought it was a Maxwell song. Oh, honey, but I went IN.

    I've never seen this Wuthering Heights before. How many times did she hit the bong before recording this video????
