After seeing Bush’s recent live shows, the record-breaking singer decided to release new album 25, already one of the most successful albums of all time
Adele has cited Kate Bush as the inspiration behind her latest comeback album, 25.
In an interview with the New York Times, she said it was while watching Bush’s recent run of London shows at Hammersmith Apollo that she realised she needed to release new music. “I read somewhere, and I don’t know if it’s true or not, that [her son] said when he was 16, ‘I want to know now why everyone loves you.’ And it makes me so emotional. After that show, it was: ‘I don’t want to wait. I don’t want to wait till my kid is 16, I want to show him now.’”
