Experiment IV Lyrics
What it's about: A secret military plan to create a sound that's horrific enough to kill from a distance.
Running time: 4:19
Wuthering Heights (New Vocal) Lyrics
What it's about: Kate's nod to Emily Bronte's classic romance novel. (More specifically, the ending, where Cathy comes back as a spirit to claim Heathcliff's soul.)
Running time: 4:57
Kate re-recorded Wuthering Heights because she thought the original sounded "too 70s" and too much like a "little girl singing".
Double A-side promotional copies of Experiment IV were also produced (EMI America P-B-8363). They were packaged in stock picture sleeves.
