KT Tunstall

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING three sold out intimate rock club shows this September, Brit and Ivor Novello Award winning singer and songwriter KT Tunstall, who is about to release her 6th studio album WAX, has announced a full UK and Ireland tour for March 2019.

Touring for the first time with an all-female band, KT will be performing at venues including The Roundhouse in London.

This month KT has released lead single The River, taken from her forthcoming album WAX, which will be released October 5 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 second of a trilogy which explores themes of spirit, body, and mind. This album focuses on the body, and our complex relationships with physicality.
