Multi-platinum singer-songwriter KT Tunstall will release her third studio album, entitled Tiger Suit, on September 28, 2010, via Virgin Records. The eco-minded Tunstall began demo-ing songs for in 2009 at the solar-powered recording studio she has built at her home in the English countryside. She then traveled to Berlin to record Tiger Suit over the course of three weeks in January at the world-famous Hansa Studios. She finished the album in London, making a global piece of work!
She described the music contained therein as "Nature Techno," due to its blend of organic instrumentation and electronic, dance-friendly textures. Yes, she said "Nature Techno" and oddly enough, I totally get what she is trying to accomplish. Tunstall co-wrote several tracks with A-list songwriter/producers Linda Perry and Greg Kurstin, as well as her long-time collaborators Martin Terefe and Jimmy Hogarth. Linda Perry has worked with pop tarts like Pink and Courtney Love, so that should give you an idea of Perry's eclectic range, since she is working with Tunstall, too.
Next month, Tunstall will perform during "WNBA vs. USA Basketball: The Stars at the Sun" halftime presentation. This marquee event will showcase the world's best female basketball players under one roof when the WNBA's top talent faces the USA Basketball Women's National Team at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on Saturday, July 10 and will be televised nationally on ESPN at 3:30 PM ET.
