In a radio interview broadcast on Wednesday (May 4), the solo artist revealed she had been writing new songs but had no idea when they would be released. Her last album, 'Ariel,' came out in 2005.
Bush told BBC Radio 4's Front Row programme, "It's very frustrating the albums take as long as they do and I wish there weren't such big gaps between them. Sometimes it's extremely stressful."
However, she refuted the idea that it was attention to detail in the studio that caused such delays. "I don't think I am [perfectionist]," 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. That's what makes a piece of art interesting sometimes -- the bit that's wrong or the mistake you've made that's led onto an idea you wouldn't have had otherwise."
Bush's current productivity has been sparked by reworking old material for her forthcoming album 'Director's Cut,' which features new versions of tracks from 'Sensual World' and 'Red Shoes,' released in 1989 and 1993 respectively, as previously reported by AOL Music UK.
Sounding relaxed and good humoured, the songwriter claimed her creativity had also been aided by putting a bag of bone meal fertiliser on her piano, adding that recent listening included the last Gorillaz's album. "I'm not a complete old fart all the time," she said.
