"Breathing" is a single by Kate Bush, the first cut from her 1980 album "Never For Ever".

The single was issued on April 14 1980, four months before the album was released, and reached number 16 in the UK charts. It was the first single by Bush to feature a non-LP track on its B-side, "The Empty Bullring".

"Breathing" is about a foetus, very much aware of what is going on outside the womb and frightened to be born into a world poisoned by nuclear fallout. In an interview that year Bush described the song as her "little symphony", adding that she considered it her best work to date. [Lorne Murdoch (1985). "Kate Bush". "Record Collector (December 1985, No. 76)": p.21]

The music video features Bush in a womb portraying a baby, slowly dying.
