A new book presenting the lyrics of Kate Bush will include an introduction written by David Mitchell

Kate Bush is to release a book presenting her lyrics for the first time.

Titled How To Be Invisible, the book will be bound in cloth and come with an expansive introduction written by David Mitchell.

"For millions around the world Kate is way more than another singer-songwriter: she is a creator of musical companions that travel with you through life," says David Mitchell. "One paradox about her is that while her lyrics are avowedly idiosyncratic, those same lyrics evoke emotions and sensations that feel universal."

How To Be Invisible will be available in both limited and hardback editions. It will be published by Faber on December 6 and can be pre-ordered here.
