Kate Bush will contribute the original song Lyra to the end title credits of New Line's upcoming fantasy adventure The Golden Compass.

The song is named after Lyra Belacqua, the lead character in the adaptation of Philip Pullman's trilogy about a girl who leads an expedition to rescue some kidnapped children.

Bush's songs have previously featured in Castaway and She's Having A Baby.

New Line will release The Golden Compass in North America on Dec 11. Newcomer Dakota Blue Richards stars as Lyra, alongside Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Sam Elliott and Eva Green.
