king of the mountain

that's the name of kate bush's new single. i heard it today on bbc radio one. perhaps there's a bit of fanboy talking, but i think it's really good. it has a nice texture to it. the opening has this kinda dreamy and ominous feel to it. there's one point where the backup vocals sound like a the horn on a passing train speeding through the snowy darkness in the middle of the night. pretty damn cool

there finally is an official site, www.katebush.com, where you can hear a snippet of the single and sign up for a newsletter. the message states that the site will launch on november 7th.
