KT Tunstall to Tour North America, Tiger Suit out on Tuesday

I had the pleasure of seeing KT Tunstall perform a live set at Earth Fest a couple of years back in Boston. It was a short set and she was just sort of getting started here in the States. I believe at that time "Black Horse & The Cherry Tree" and "Suddenly I See" had been released in the States, giving Tunstall a launchpad of sorts over on this side of the pond...but subsequent singles never really saw as much success in the States as those two. Sad really, considering Tunstall's sophomore album Drastic Fantastic peaked at #9 on the Billboard 200 (twenty-four spots higher than her debut album).  "Hold On," the only "Drastic" charting single to be released in the States peaked at #104 on the Billboard Hot 100.  Here's hoping that Tunstall's new album Tiger Suit gets her right back up where she belongs - on U.S. radio stations and on stages and pavillions across America.  Tunstall's talent isn't one that should be cast aside.

In support of Tunstall's third studio album Tiger Suit, due out next Tuesday on Virgin Records, Tunstall will be stepping out on tour (and on TV) this Fall, playing twenty dates starting October 31st in Portland and ending in New York City on December 1st. AMAZING!  Alongside New York-based band Hurricane Bells, KT Tunstall will be playing theaters and clubs, criss-crossing her way from one side of the country to the other.  Tickets are on sale now so get yours!  To mark the release of the album on Tuesday, Tunstall will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno performing her debut U.S. single "Fade Like A Shadow."  Watch the Paul Minor-directed video HERE!  The single is decidedly more up-tempo than her first UK single "(Still A) Weirdo," (watch the video below) which was released last Monday.  That was apparently a calculated move by Virgin Records, who thought that the song might do better on U.S. radio stations. I can't say I blame them, though in all honesty Tiger Suit is a pretty a solid album filled with a bunch of potential singles.  Here's hoping U.S. radio gives her a shot this time around. In an interview with Billboard, Tunstall admits that her new "nature techno" sound might lose some old fans but she remains optimistic overall. "I may lose some fans of the old stuff, but I get the feeling I've already made a few new ones by embracing a bit of experimentation." (via Billboard)

Tiger Suit was produced by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Editors) and serving with Tunstall on songwriting duties we have Linda Perry and Greg Kurstin, not to mention longtime collaborators Martin Terefe and Jimmy Hogarth. AMAZING! Check out the tour dates below and catch KT in a city near you. Tiger Suit will be released on October 5th.
