6 Music will air an hour-long interview with Kate Bush later this month, her first broadcast interview since 2011. In it, Bush discusses the series of live shows she performed to much acclaim back in 2014, the live recording of which will be released on 25 Nov. Tom Robinson’s 6 Music show will also have the exclusive first play of the second of the three discs that make up the CD release of that live album.

The interview bit was done by that Matt Everitt, who says: “Kate Bush is without doubt one of the most original and gifted musicians and producers of all time. Having loved her music my whole life and been lucky enough to witness her live comeback, it was incredible to have an opportunity to find out her reasons behind performing again, how she brought a hugely demanding and ambitious conceptual vision to the stage, and of course, just to meet the person behind so many wonderful songs”.

The interview and album playback will air on 20 Nov. 6 Music’s Head of Programmes Paul Rodgers adds: “I’m delighted that 6 Music has the world exclusive radio interview with Kate Bush. This is exciting news for her fans around the world. I hope they will join 6 Music on Sunday 20 November to hear the interview and celebrate this cherished artist together in a live listening party. They can share favourite music and memories of Kate on radio and social media and hear the exclusive first play of her live performance of ‘The Ninth Wave'”.
