The Red Shoes is the seventh studio album by British singer/songwriter Kate Bush.

The album contained one song with musical input by Prince, Why Should I Love You?, written by Bush (with no writing input from Prince). Kate Bush's track was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, while Prince's parts were recorded at Paisley Park Studios, marking the only time a released track has been recorded in the two legendary studios.

The album also featured musical input by Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Nigel Kennedy. Why Should I Love You? also features British comedian Lenny Henry, who has long been vocal about his love for Prince's music, and performed various monologues about and impersonations of Prince during the 1980s.

The album produced four singles, Rubberband Girl, Eat The Music, The Red Shoes and And So Is Love. It reached number 28 on the US Billboard Pop Chart, and was more successful in the UK (Bush's home country), where it reached number 2 on the Gallup Top 40 Album Chart.
