Kate Bush has been nominated 13 times for British Phonographic Industry accolades, and in 1987 she won a Brit Award for Best British Female Artist. During the course of her career, she has also been nominated for three Grammy Awards. In 2002, she was recognized with an Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music. Bush was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to music.
Yet despite these accolades she is notoriously slow at releasing new music and has, at times, left the break between one album and the other for several years..
In this 1983 interview Kate talks about the 1979 video to her UK concerts. The videos were released in the US in 1983 with the intention to help promote her music there and reflected performances of songs from her first two albums, The Kick Inside and Lionheart.
In the interview Kate talks about what inspires her to write and where the ideas com from and how she discovered dance which has become a feature of her live and recorded performance.
