Kate Bush has recorded a new song for the forthcoming film ‘The Golden Compass’.
The new track ‘Lyra’, named after the film’s main character Lyra Belacqua will feature over the film’s end credits and on the soundtrack album.
The film, based on Phillip Pullman‘s book ‘Northern Lights’, is due for release on December 5.
Kate Bush wrote and produced ‘Lyra’ in her own studio, with Oxford’s Magdalen College Choir, apt as the novel is set in and around Oxford’s Colleges.
The soundtrack to the film will be available to download and buy from December 12.
Bush’s last new material was 2005’s double album ‘Ariel‘.
