Kate Bush: Running Up That Hill (Record Store Day Animated 10" Picture Disc)


Saturday April 20th sees the 6th annual Record Store Day in the UK. Record Store Day is the one day that all the independently owned record stores come together with musicians to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases along with various promotional products are made exclusively for sale on the day. For the third consecutive year Kate Bush is releasing a special 10" vinyl single as part of the celebrations.

This years release, a double A-side featuring 'Running Up That Hill' (2012 Remix) and 'Walk Straight Down The Middle' is of particular interest because of is zoetropic picture disc design. The side featuring 'Running Up That Hill', which was a UK number 6 hit for Kate in 2012 after it was prominently featured at the London Olympic closing ceremony, has a bizarre animated sequence of a fish-headed man jogging round the centre label. The 10" is limited to a merge 2500 copies in the UK and as with all Record Store Day releases it's sure to sell out quickly. Even if you're not a fan of the music it's worth picking up a copy as an animated optical curio. Check it out...
