Singer Kate Bush is to release a new album in November, which will be entirely themed around snow.

The record, 50 Words For Snow, will feature seven new tracks "set against a background of falling snow", a statement on her website said.

It will be the second release this year from the artist, who has a notoriously languid work rate

The new material was recorded simultaneously with her last album, Director's Cut, which came out in May.

That album presented re-recorded versions of songs from her earlier albums The Red Shoes and The Sensual World.

Her last album of new material was Aerial, released in 2005.

Speaking to Radio 4's Front Row in May, Bush said her new songs were a "work in progress", but refused to say when they might be available.

The 53-year-old admitted she found the time it took to put a new record out was "extremely stressful".

"It's very frustrating the albums take as long as they do. I wish there weren't such big gaps between them," she said.

The star, whose hits include Wuthering Heights and Running Up That Hill, also denied being a perfectionist in the studio.

"I don't think I am," she said. "People have said this, but I don't think I really want anything to be perfect.

"I think it's important that things are flawed," she continued.
