Kate Bush Premieres Unreleased Video for “The Man I Love”
- British singer-songwriter Kate Bush will release “The Other Sides”, a massive collection of music that features a trove of other B-sides and rarities in March, 2019.
On March 4th, she unveiled an unreleased video for “The Man I Love” from the collection.
The song was produced and arranged by late Beatles producer George Martin, while the music video was directed by Kevin Godley of 10cc.
The video filmed in 1994, she covered George and Ira Gershwin's classic along with Larry Adler.
This is the first time the video has officially been released since its original TV broadcast.
“The Man I Love” was written by George Gershwin and his brother Ira. Part of the 1924 score for the Gershwin government satire Lady, Be Good as "The Girl I Love".
- Kate Bush said of the video in a statement;
“This romantic song was written by George and Ira Gershwin and when Larry Adler put an album together of their songs, called The Glory of Gershwin, he asked me to sing this beautiful song. The album was produced by George Martin. I was very fond of George – such a special talent and creative spirit, a really gentle man, very kind and incredibly interesting. It was a great honour to work with him and Larry. George and Larry were very different personalities ( Larry was a real character), but they made a great creative combination.
It was released as a single and Kevin Godley directed the video. I loved working with Kevin – so imaginative and great fun. I’d worked with him and Lol Creme when they directed the video for Peter Gabriel’s song, Don’t Give Up. Kevin chose to present the video in a very traditional way which suited the song extremely well. Godley and Creme are huge talents who left their mark not just in the music industry with their intelligence and wit in the band 10CC but also in the visual world with their groundbreaking videos, working with an impressive list of diverse artists.”
