If you like: KT Tunstall!
If you were born pre 95 then you are almost definitely familiar with award winning Scottish superstar KT Tunstall. Her best known track “Suddenly I See” see was certified gold after spending more than 26 weeks in the UK top 75 making her a household name in the UK.
KT Is back with an updated sound and her signature raspy voice. We love the soulfulness of this pop-rock track and think you will too.
The video for ‘Human Being’, directed by Tunstall herself, features young martial artist Eccaia Sampson, an 8-year-old black belt nunchuck talent, who KT came across on tour earlier this year.
KT says of the video: “My vision for the video was to create a mirror between a young, crazy- talented, bold little girl, and link that burgeoning energy to a band of warrioress women who have achieved their goal of turning their young talents into something very real and powerful as working musicians and performers; all of us living these lives through following our dreams and keeping that punk spirit we all had as kids, but always inevitably vulnerable as humans beings.”
The single is taken from her latest highly acclaimed UK Top 15 charting studio album ‘WAX’, out now on Virgin Records. The album is entirely self/co-written and produced by Nick McCarthy, founding member of multimillion selling band Franz Ferdinand, with co-production from duo MyRiot (London Grammar, Birdy). ‘WAX’ 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 C
