KT Tunstall announces November UK dates and new LP
Story by Jack Foley
MULTI-platinum selling singer songwriter KT Tunstall is set to release her much-anticipated fourth studio album Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon through Virgin Records on June 10, 2013.
Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon represents a return to the delicate simplicity of her early work and an evolution of her sound, with its country-folk tinged undercurrents.
Travelling to Tucson, Arizona to record her new album with alt-country leading light Howe Gelb (AKA Giant Sand) KT describes the album as “full of songs from the heart”.
The album is made up from two sessions with a season in between them, and KT saw the work as naturally separated into two distinct parts – an ‘A’ side and a ‘B’ side.
The first single from Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon will be Feel It All, released in conjunction with the album on June 10, 2013.
An intimate alt-country/bluesy track about loss, it is shot through with insistent melodies and heartfelt lyrics that are some of KT’s most personal.
