The singer and songwriter celebrates the launch of her new, fourth album with her first solo gig in Hay. Invisible Empire/Crescent Moon represents a return to the delicate simplicity of the singer’s 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 stunning album as ‘full of songs from the heart’.
Since scoring a worldwide hit with her debut album Eye To The Telescope in 2005, which went on to sell more than 4 million copies worldwide and over 1.8 million in the UK alone (and 1 million plus in the US), KT Tunstall has remained at the forefront of UK singer-songwriter talent. Two critically acclaimed albums, Drastic Fantastic and Tiger Suit, followed in 2007 and 2010 respectively, keeping the platinum sales rolling and cementing the Scottish songstress’ reputation as a major recording talent, as well as a mesmerizing live artist.
