Art Of Peace: Songs For Tibet II is an album, produced by Rupert Hine, released to mark the 80th birthday of the Dalai Lama. The Grammy-nominated first volume of this collection in 2008 contained several rare versions of songs and live tracks from the contributing musicians. The new collection does the same. It includes a version of Kate Bush’s Wild Man, with ‘remastered shimmer’. 

According to Stephen W. Tayler, who mixed the original track for the album 50 Words For Snow, “…it’s the original mix with an added layer that makes it subtly different and beautiful. I advise to check the iTunes previews when they appear before making a judgement. That’s all I can say!” Kate’s remastered track has a running time of 7 minutes, 12 seconds shorter than the original album version.
