Kate Bush to collaborate with Outkast's Big Boi?

Outkast's Big Boi has revealed that he has been talking to singer Kate Bush and has hinted that they may be planning a collaboration.

The rapper tweeted last night (August 15) that he had been in contact with the singer, writing: "Just got off the phone with Kate Bush!" When fans then pressed him to ask if the pair were collaboration, the rapper said: "Stay tuned..... ooooowwww!"

Big Boi has frequently said he would like to work with the singer, saying as recently as June of this year: "I want her [Bush] to co-produce something with me. We'd produce a song and write it from scratch. I'd rather get her in a room and not have a plan and just let it come organically – it's not like I've got a song and I'll just be like, 'I want you to sing this part right here.'"

Kate Bush is set to re-enter the UK Top 10 this weekend with a remix of her hit single "Running Up That Hill" after the track was featured in the Olympics closing ceremony.

Bush herself had been rumoured to be making an appearance at the ceremony, but the singer, who last performed live in 1979, did not appear in the end.

Earlier this summer, Big Boi revealed that he plans to release his new album, Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors on November 13 in the US and November 12 in the UK.
