    Ooh—Kate! I haven’t thought about this one in quite a while, and I think I like it even better now. Haunting, as she often can be.

      I am often a huge fan of Kate’s while other times I don’t care for her at all. This is, however, one of the first sort. I hadn’t heard it in a long while either.

    Ah, Before the Dawn, Kate waited a couple of years before releasing this but disappointingly did not offer up a video of her residency at the Hammersmith Odeon

      My Dear Hedley,
      I found this,

      “In the lead-up to her 22-date run of sold-out Before the Dawn performances in 2014, Kate Bush spent three days submerged in a tank filled with water. Not for some new-age cleansing ritual, but to create a sense of authenticity while shooting the video for And Dream of Sheep, a song about a woman who is lost at sea.

      This realism however, became more tangible than Kate had initially imagined. According to a spokesperson for the artist, she spent so long in the water during the first day of filming that she contracted mild hypothermia, but recovered after a day off and carried on filming. “Everyone agreed it had added to the authenticity of the performance,” they said.
