Media Release: Il Divo poised to pip Kate Bush

AERIAL’ is the first major album from Kate Bush since the release of The Red Shoes
in November 1993 (highest chart position – #2).

Phil Penman, HMV head of Music comments: “Anticipation around this Kate Bush album has been building for some time now, and she certainly hasn’t disappointed with this brilliant release. Kate is an icon to her many fans and an inspiration to a huge number of performers and recording
artists who have been influenced by her. I can see this album becoming yet another
classic, which, despite being a double-CD, will sell consistently well in the coming

“Il Divo are now global superstars with huge mainstream appeal, so it’s not
surprising that their new album looks set to get off to a chart-topping start.
Despite ‘crossing-over’ from a classical background, I suspect they’ll be taking on
the likes of Eminem, Madonna and Robbie to be the biggest selling artists of the
Christmas period.”
