Multi-platinum selling singer songwriter KT Tunstall is set to release her much-anticipated fourth studio album ‘Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon’ through Virgin Records on 10th June.
Starting in May, the summer will see a run of dates, giving the new material its first live airing.
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 1.8m in the UK alone (and a 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’s reputation as a major recording talent, as well as a mesmerising live artist.
‘Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon’ represents a return to the delicate simplicity of KT’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”.
To coincide with album release, KT announces the following live dates, with Leeds, Glasgow, London and Leamington Spa going on pre-sale with Ticketmaster 21st March.
