50 Words For Snow
Album lyrics Kate Bush

Release date: November 2011

50 Words for Snow is the tenth studio album by English singer-songwriter Kate Bush. It is the second album to be released on her own label, Fish People. It is her first all-new studio album since Aerial from 2005.

In an interview with the American radio station KCRW, Bush said that the idea for the album's title song came from thinking about the myth that Eskimos have 50 words for snow. She then decided to make up increasingly fantastical words herself, such as "spangladasha," "anechoic," "blown from Polar fur," and "Robber's Veil"
