I think Kate Bush has always been of another world or era, not this one, but we are blessed to have her. Now, she’s proving her talent and musical genius once again, only this time, it’s within the realm of literature.
All her collective works throughout her career that contain lyrics tying back to literary legends like Emily Bronte and James Joyce will be published. That’s 40 years worth of undeniable art and we’re ready for it. According The Irish Times, Faber will release How to Be Invisible: Selected Lyrics on December 6th and it comes with a special contribution.

Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell, who has said Bush is his “hero”, wrote a beautiful introduction about the singer for her book. His adoration and tribute to Bush is one that lasts a lifetime:
For millions around the world Kate is way more than another singer-songwriter: she is a creator of musical companions that travel with you through life… One paradox about her is that while her lyrics are avowedly idiosyncratic, those same lyrics evoke emotions and sensations that feel universal.
We have to agree with that one. December might be an even more successful month than Bush could imagine. She has been nominated for induction into the Rock’n’ Roll Hall of Fame for 2018 and the winners are announced in December. What a time that would be as an inductee with a brand new lyrical book. Once again, Bush never ceases to entrance us all.
