Hear “Prologue” From Kate Bush’s New Live Album Before The Dawn

Two years ago, Kate Bush played her first live shows in 35 years, settling in for a 22-date residency at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. All those shows sold out almost instantly, which means most of us never got a chance to hear what a Kate Bush live performance sounds like in this century. But later this year, Bush will release a triple-CD live album called Before The Dawn, and it will document the whole three-act show. The album — like the live show — includes one set of hits, one focused on songs from Bush’s 1985 classic Hounds Of Love, and one built around songs from her 2006 double album Aerial, as well as one new song, “Tawny Moon,” that Bush’s son performed. Below, check out the album’s tracklist, and listen to “Prologue,” the 10-minute opening track from the third .
