Video: Kate Bush - And Dream Of Sheep

Tuesday 22nd November, 2016 10:42AM

Kate Bush has unveiled a special video to accompany the release of 'And Dream Of Sheep', a 1985 song re-recorded for her upcoming three-CD live album Before the Dawn. Slated for release on 25th November, the album was recorded during Bush's 22-date residency at the Hammersmith Apollo in London which saw her return to the stage after a 35 year hiatus.

The vocal performance for 'And Dream Of Sheep' was tracked while Kate was lying in a huge water tank at Pinewood Studios, where the video was shot. The film became part of the shows at the Hammersmith Apollo, having being played in the background of the show, creating a sense of authenticity for the character as explained in a statement:

The vocal was performed live while filming Kate lying in the huge water tank at Pinewood Studios. This was to create a sense of realism, as the character in the song is lost at sea. However it became more realistic than Kate had imagined. She spent so long in the water during the first day of filming that she contracted mild hypothermia. She recovered after a day off and carried on filming. Everyone agreed it had added to the authenticity of the performance. This film was then projected onto a large oval screen which hung above the stage during the performances of her live show.
