LONDON, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- British pop music icon Kate Bush, largely out of view for 12 years, says she will release a new album next year, the Times of London said Thursday.
Bush, 46, released an album and a self-directed film entitled "The Red Shoes" in early 1993, after which she retired to her home near Reading for sculpting, child-raising and making films.
The EMI-produced album will feature the last work of Michael Kamen, the composer and arranger, who died last year.
It also includes the work of Mick Karn, bassist with the Eighties new romantic group Japan, drummer Stuart Elliott and jazz percussionist Peter Erskine. The London Metropolitan Orchestra will feature with two classical musicians, Emma Murphy and Susanna Pell.
