Kate Bush makes music history with multiple albums re-entering the UK chart

Less than a week after the premiere of her ‘Break Of Dawn’ London live shows, Kate Bush’s album sales have gone into overdrive and allowed her to make chart history once again.

Kate Bush has now become the first female in history to achieve eight albums charting within the Top 40 simultaneously.

Whilst all of her albums have made it into the Top 50, the eight that have re-entered the Top 40 are ‘The Whole Story – a compilation dated 1986 – at No. 6, ‘Hounds Of Love’ at No. 9, ’50 Words For Snow’ – her most recent album – at No. 20, her debut ‘The Kick Inside’ at No. 24, ‘The Sensual World’ at No. 26, ‘The Dreaming’ at No. 37, ‘Never For Ever’ at No. 38, and ‘Lionheart’ at No. 40.

Her remaining three records have also raced back into the chart as ‘Aerial’ sits at No. 43, ‘Director’s Cut’ makes it to No. 44 and ‘The Red Shoes’ appears at No. 49.

Kate Bush first made chart history with her debut single ‘Wuthering Heights’ when it reached No. 1 in 1978. This feat made her the first woman to hit No. 1 with a self-penned song.

To date, Kate Bush’s best-selling studio album remains to be 1985’s ‘Hounds Of Love’ which features the hit singles ‘Running Up That Hill’, ‘Cloudbursting’, the album’s title track, and ‘The Big Sky’, as well as the concept suite 'The Ninth Wave'. 

Kate Bush’s residency at London’s Hammersmith Apollo continues on September 2 and sees her play through until her final show on October 1.
