Kate Bush - December Will Be Magic Again / Warm And Soothing (1978) - single

"December Will Be Magic Again" is a one-off single by English singer-songwriter-pianist Kate Bush. The single was released in the U.K. in November 1980.
The song was written and originally recorded in 1979 at Abbey Road Studio 2 London with Preston Heyman on Drums, Sleigh Bells and Maraccas, Alan Murphy Guitar, Kuma Harada on Bass and Kate herself on Piano, but not released until the Christmas season of the next year on 17 November 1980. The single peaked at number 29 on the UK Singles Chart, but due to its early release date had slipped before the Christmas week. No promotional video was filmed for this single, but an alternative recording of the song was performed on Bush's 1979 Christmas television special. Neither has ever appeared on a Kate Bush album, except for the “This Woman's Work” box set, but both have managed to find their way on to various Christmas compilations.
The B-side was "Warm and Soothing", a simple piece of Bush singing with just her piano accompaniment. In this sense it was similar in style to "In the Warm Room" and "Feel It" from her first two albums. This was the first song she recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
