"I had the idea to do the album and thought that it'd be great at Fringe," she reflects. "Then the news came out that Kate Bush was doing her shows in London and I thought 'that's weird, but that's perfect'. So I went ahead and registered and then I started hearing the rumours that she would be including The Ninth Wave song cycle as part of her live shows and that time I thought 'that's even weirder, I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing'. On reflection, I think it's actually turned out to be a good thing. It just points to the fact that this is an idea whose time has come – it's time to bring these songs to the stage, which was part of her original intention for the songs anyway."
