Singer/songwriter Kate Bush almost never finished her comeback album AERIAL because she got sick and tired of working on it.

The WUTHERING HEIGHTS hitmaker blames exhaustion for almost scuppering her return to the music industry after a 12 year absence.

She says, "There were so many times I thought I wasn't going to have the energy to see it (the album) through.

"I knew I couldn't go on any longer or it would have killed me. I was so fed up making it."

And Bush admits that lack of commitment isn't her only fault.

She adds, "I'm very opinionated. I'm horrible to work with; I'm so fussy and picky.

"What's good is that I know what I want. It's when you don't know what you want that you're in trouble."
