Reclusive singer Kate Bush is stepping back into the limelight with a new album after a 12-year break.

The WUTHERING HEIGHTS star quit the music industry in 1993 - following the release of her The Red Shoes disc - to focus on family life.

However, Bush has recorded a new set of tunes in her home studio in London and has promised fans the collection will hit music store shelves in March (05).

She says, "The album is nearly finished and will be out next year.

"There are some lovely performances. I hope you will feel it has been worth the wait."

Bush has a six-year-old son, BERTIE, with her guitarist partner DANNY McINTOSH.
