KATE BUSH TO REP RECORD STORE DAY
2/28/24

Kate Bush will champion the culture of record shops all over the U.K. as the ambassador of this year’s Record Store Day U.K. She’ll release a special 10" edition of her ’93 single “Eat the Music.”

“Eat the Music” is from Bush’s ’93 album, Red Shoes (Noble & Brite), but was cancelled as a single release in the U.K. in favor of “Rubberband Girl.” (The former was, however, released by Columbia in the U.S.) Bush has created a UV-printed 10” with her preferred track list of "Eat the Music," "Lily" and "Big Stripey Lie."

“What a huge honor to have been asked to be ambassador for this year’s Record Store Day. It really is a great privilege,” Bush said. “Isn’t it great to see how the resurgence in vinyl has taken the music industry by complete surprise? It had decided to leave vinyl far behind, but it would seem that not everyone agrees! I love that.

“I know there are many, many artists who are just as excited to see the audience turning the tide. In the same way that some people like to read a book on Kindle but also want to have a book as a physical object, a lot of people like vinyl and streaming. Both have different appeals.

"The added bonus of vinyl is that it encourages people to listen to albums. An art form that I’ve always thought can be treasured in a unique way. An album on vinyl is a beautiful thing, given a strong identity by its large-scale artwork. There’s a much more personal connection with the artist and their work.”

More than 270 independent U.K. shops are set to take part in this year’s Record Store Day on 4/20, the highest in its 17-year history.
