Kate Bush has admitted she was "terrified" of her shows in 2014 and has no idea if she will tour again

Kate Bush is not sure if she will tour again after being "terrified" by her live comeback shows in 2014.

The 'Wuthering Heights' hitmaker performed 22 sold-out shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo to critical acclaim, for what marked her first gigs since her one and only tour in 1979.

And now the 58-year-old musician says while she is working on live album 'Before The Dawn', which is comprised of performances from the concerts, she has no idea if she will return to the stage.

Of the shows, she said: "Yeah, I was terrified. The idea of putting the show together was something that I found really interesting and really exciting ... but to actually step into it was something that I had to really work hard on because I was terrified of doing live work as a performer again."

And asked if she plans on performing live again, she told BBC 6 Music: "The thing about that show is that most of the material was already written. And to start something like that from scratch is another whole world of work, isn't it?

"It was an extraordinary thing to be involved in, especially to have got the response that we did. It was really magical.

"But I don't know. I don't know what I'm going to do next. I want to just do something new. I've been working [on] this project for a really long time now."

The LP will mark the star's first release since 2011's '50 Words for Snow'.

The compilation is billed as a triple album, with each one marking different sections of the run of concerts she performed.

'Act One' consists of a seven song set of hits from throughout Kate's career including tracks such as 'Hounds of Love' and 'Running Up That Hill'.

'Act Two' features the songs from side two of the 1985 album 'Hounds of Love', in a sequence of songs collectively titled 'The Ninth Wave'.

Finally, 'Act Three' is made up of the songs from side two of Kate's 2005 album 'Aerial', collectively known as 'A Sky of Honey'.

Kate's live album 'Before The Dawn' will be released on November 25.
