Kate Bush’s 22-date residency at London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo in 2014 is to be showcased in a new live package.

Before The Dawn will be released on November 25 via Fish People and distributed through Rhino Records.

The run of sold-out dates were Bush’s first major live commitments since 1979 and led to her entire catalogue of albums re-entering the UK charts.

Before The Dawn will be released on 3CD, 4LP and digital download.

A statement reads: “The conceptual heart of the show is reflected in the CD format, which is split over three discs centred around the two integral pieces – The Ninth Wave and A Sky Of Honey.

“CD1 ends with the pivotal track King Of The Mountain which bridges into The Ninth Wave suite of songs on CD2.”

Before The Dawn was produced by Bush with none of the material re-recorded or overdubbed. It’s now available for pre-order on CD and vinyl.

In addition, Bush has made made Before The Dawn’s Prologue available to stream. Listen to it below.
