KT Tunstall is back with her fourth studio album, 'Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon’, already the most critically acclaimed of her career!
Catch her on the last of our Saturday Night Gifts show this week (14th December) having a chat with Dale and and Debbie, and performing live. She's also teamed up with Pure Tone to bring us an acoustic guitar and instruction book set – a perfect gift for would-be musicians!
The album has influences from the country-folk genre after the singer recorded the tracks in the southwestern American state Arizona. KT describes the album as 'full of songs from the heart.'
‘Made of Glass’ is a song about how fragile life can be and how we might pretend it isn't. “The song was inspired by a friend giving me a gift of a beautiful cut vase." KT explains, "Not long afterwards he tragically passed away, and I was hit with the irony of him giving me the most breakable object to remember him by.”
The title track, 'Invisible Empire', is equally meaningful. The singer says: “It’s about creating a reality that is only based on what you want to see, not what’s real." KT says, "It’ll either come crashing down, or you’ll want to set it alight yourself to find the truth. It’s about the idea that if you try and control life, you kill it, but if you let it flow in its own way, it can flourish.”
Don't miss the global singing sensation on Saturday Night Gifts at 8pm!
