"I'd like to think that some of the songs could be of some
comfort if anyone's having a hardtime," says Kate Bush, whose new album, The
Sensual World, is just out. "Each song is a scenario in a way, a short story."
It's been four years since Bush has released an album of new material - she did release a compilation album in 1986 - but it's been even longer since she's toured. "My touring situation is a little unusual, to say the least," she says. "I've only ever done one tour, and that was ten years ago, and since then I've only concentrated on albums. I much enjoyed the tour. But touring is just re-creating music that already exists."
Perhaps because she doesn't tour, Bush, who's a major star in England, has never reached as broad an audience in the U.S. "It doesn't really surprise me," she says. "I've never seen making an album in terms of sweeping the market."
