KT rose to fame in 2004 after her performance of ‘Black Horse and the Cherry Tree’ on Later with Jools Holland, and has a reputation for her electrifying live performances.
‘Tiger Suit’ was released on Virgin/Relentless September 27th 2010. “Making the album felt a bit like an archaeological dig, digging deeper to uncover what most turns me on,” says Tunstall. “The best way I can describe it is that I felt I discovered the indigenous part of myself by going back to campfire dance music just as much as club dance music. Losing yourself in the middle of nowhere around a fire is no different to losing yourself surrounded by hundreds of people on a dancefloor.”
KT Tunstall has had a recurring dream since she was a child. She sees a tiger in her garden and goes outside to stroke it. She returns indoors and is seized by the fear that she could have been killed. Over the years, it has occurred to her that the reason the tiger responds so passively is that she herself is disguised as a tiger. That she is wearing a tiger suit. The Brit Award-winning singer has tapped into that childlike boldness in the making of her third album. Tiger Suit heralds the start of a new musical adventure for KT, where organic instrumentation blends with dance friendly textures, the results of which KT has dubbed as ‘Nature Techno’. Elements of all the influences that make up ‘Tiger Suit’ come together in the stunning first single (Still A) Weirdo, one of the last songs to be written for the album. A beautiful acoustic guitar line floats through organic and electronic rhythm sounds, while the lyrics are some of KT’s most personal and affecting. Of the song that is sure to strike a chord with many, KT says: “It’s one of those rare moments you can see yourself objectively; you can look into your own emotional machinery and realise what you are.”
