  • Bush duets with counter tenor Stefan Roberts on this piano-driven song about a ghostly woman who rises up out of "cold mountain water," to call her missing dog, Snowflake. Roberts is a 19-year-old choral singer who has sung with the Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford and at York Minster. Speaking to jazz singer Jamie Cullum in an interview on Dutch Radio, Bush explained that she wished to explore using a high male voice in contrast to her own, deeper, voice.
