With very special guest, LAUREL
Following 3 sold out intimate rock club shows this September, Brit and Ivor Novello Award winning singer and songwriter KT Tunstall, who recently released her 6th studio album, WAX announces a full UK & Ireland tour for March 2019. Touring for the first time with an all-female band, KT will be performing in The Olympia Theatre March 4th. Tickets on sale now from Ticketmaster.
This month KT has released lead single ‘The River’, taken from her forthcoming 6th studio album ‘WAX’, which will be released October 5th on Virgin Records. ‘WAX’ was entirely self/co-written and is produced by Nick McCarthy, founding member of multimillion selling band Franz Ferdinand, with co-production from duo MyRiot (London Grammar, Birdy). The album also features co-writing contributions from her frequent creative collaborator Martin Terefe and Kings Of Leon producer/ mentor Angelo Petraglia. Drumming duties from seasoned LA-based musician Denny Weston Jnr, and guitar from longstanding friend and collaborator Charlotte Hatherley amongst others, with KT on guitar, synths and vocals throughout. Following the success of 2016’s Top 10 album ‘KIN’,forthcoming album ‘WAX’ is the 2nd of a trilogy which explores themes of spirit, body, and mind. This album focuses on the body, and our complex relationships with physicality.
KT Tunstall emerged in 2004 with ‘Eye To The Telescope’. She has since released a further four critically acclaimed albums and her songs have been used everywhere from the opening credits of The Devil Wears Prada to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign theme. Her last album ’KIN’, released in 2016, received rave reviews and debuted at No.7 on the official UK Album Charts.
Recently KT has been awarded the Inspirational Artist gong at the Women In Music Awards. She was chosen as the first ever female Grand Marshal (following the likes of Sir Sean Connery) to lead April’s annual New York Tartan Week parade. In May she and Mike McCready, of legendary multimillion selling Pearl Jam, also released a cover of Tom Petty’s huge hit single ‘I Won’t Back Down’ with proceeds going to Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation. KT has spent the summer touring worldwide with superb artists including, The Pretenders, Simple Minds and Barenaked Ladies. For more details visit: www.kttunstall.com
