"The Sensual World" was the first single release and title track from the album "
The Sensual World" by Kate Bush.
"The Sensual World" was released on
September 18 1989prior to the album and peaked at number 12 in the UK Singles Chart. "The Sensual World" marked Bush's return from her second three-year hiatus. Not counting collaborative efforts (and a couple of songs written specifically for movie soundtracks), this was her first UK release in 35 months.
The song is inspired by
Molly Bloomstepping out of the black and white, two-dimensional pages of James Joyce's "Ulysses" into the real world, and is immediately struck by the sensuality of it all. It was originally supposed to be Molly Bloom's speech (from the end of "Ulysses") set to music, but Bush could not secure the rights from the Joyce estate, so she altered it.
The video, which features Kate dancing through a wood with alternately blossom and hail raining down is directed by
The Comic Stripco-creator Peter Richardson.

The 12"vinyl release of the single had a double-grooved A-sideso that either the song or an instrumental version of the song would be played depending on where the needle was placed.
