Damn her beautiful voice is altered/ distorted,

Is it a Vocoder - or AutoTune... ?

Rhyging

^ Just like you correctly stated in the thread title it's auto-tune, the vocoder sound is different. Honestly, I don't like that snippet but hey, this is a re-worked album, let her try some trendy studio effects for once...

"Deeper Understanding" is a song about a man who pretty much loses all semblance of a social life to the Internet.

It's fitting.

iSnatch, iRead, iDrag. For Beysus and in general. Simple.

Nice pic.... <img src=" />

I think I like the original "Deeper Understanding" better,

Hopefully Kate Bush won't make another "1999 New Master" !?

Agreed. The part she is singing there is literally from the perspective of the computer, so it makes sense in the context of the song. It's an interesting take on it.

And the original is being remastered as well, so whichever you prefer, it will be there cool

I actually think the new clip sounds pretty cool. Initially it wasn't what I expected, but after a few listens it's actually got me pretty excited about this project.

And that photo is cool.

Well it's boring as all fuck. That's all I've been hearing for 7 years.

Kate’s new album “Director’s Cut” is released on May 16, the first album to be released on her own label, Fish People, which will be distributed by EMI.

The track-listing for the album, which sees her revisit and, in some cases, re-record tracks from two of her classic albums is:

FLOWER OF THE MOUNTAIN (a new version of the song originally titled ‘The Sensual World’)

SONG OF SOLOMON

DEEPER UNDERSTANDING

LILY

RED SHOES

THIS WOMAN’S WORK

MOMENTS OF PLEASURE

NEVER BE MINE

TOP OF THE CITY

AND SO IS LOVE

RUBBERBAND GIRL

Kate says: “Originally when I wrote the song ‘The Sensual World’ I had used text from the end of ‘Ulysses’ by James Joyce, put to a piece of music I had written. When I asked for permission to use the text I was refused, which was disappointing. I then wrote my own lyrics for the song although I felt that the original idea had been more interesting. Well, I’m not James Joyce am I? When I came to work on this project I thought I would ask for permission again and this time they said yes. It is now re-titled ‘Flower Of the Mountain’ and I am delighted that I have had the chance to fulfill the original concept”.

All the lead vocals and drums on “Director’s Cut” are new performances, some of the tracks featuring guests including Steve Gadd, Danny Thompson and, on backing vocals, Mica Paris. Three songs have been completely re-recorded, one of which is “This Woman’s Work”.

Kate adds: “For some time I have felt that I wanted to revisit tracks from these two albums and that they could benefit from having new life breathed into them. Lots of work had gone into the two original albums and now these songs have another layer of work woven into their fabric. I think of this as a new album”.

Kate Bush is currently working on her new album of brand new material.

Here's the full length version of Deeper Understanding. It's quite odd, thankfully. smile

Absolutely destroys the original. Far more atmospheric and lonely, a feeling in conjunction with the subject matter. A fantastic arrangement, amazing creativity. One of the best songs i have heard this year so far. Autotune doesn't remind me of the likes of Lil Wayne, it creates a brilliant, haunting atmosphere as a comforting computer.
