"And So Is Love" is a song written and recorded by musician Kate Bush. It was the fourth and final single release from the album The Red Shoes. Guest star Eric Clapton plays guitar on the track.[1] The Hammond organ is by Gary Brooker of Procol Harum.[citation needed]

Released on 7 November 1994, the single climbed to number 26 in the UK Singles Chart.[citation needed] Its entry into the Top 40 marked Bush's first appearance on Top of the Pops in nine years. The lyric is about the end of a love affair, with the narrator declaring that both life and love are sad, and deciding that for the "sake of love," the two must set each other free.

"Eat the Music" also appears on the UK "And So Is Love" CD single, in the same version as on the 12-inch single featured on the U.S. CD and cassingle. Additionally, there is a third version, the so-called "Extended Mix" which appears on the European and Australian singles, and which is actually 12 seconds shorter than the LP mix.
