iTunes Editors’ Notes

The death of her father, a separation from her husband of four years, and a label change (Blue Note!) all sent KT Tunstall into reflection mode for much of her dual-titled fourth album. The duality is meant to reflect these changes, plus the two different sessions that took place in April and November of 2012 with production by alt-country icon Howe Gelb of Giant Sand. True to form, Gelb gave Tunstall all the room she needed to purge herself at his Tucson recording studio. Whatever slick pop impulses she still had were left in the parking lot. In fact, there isn’t another album in Tunstall’s catalog that’s as stripped to the studs with such a focus on her powerful vocal performances. “Old Man Song,” “How You Kill Me," and “Made of Glass” (which, according to Tunstall, was recorded in one take) confront the loss of a parent in the most unflinching terms. “No Better Shoulder” is an acoustic number that was meant to shut down the official album. The deluxe edition adds four songs, including a restrained take on Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer.”

Customer Reviews

Sorry...

Let me lead with I'm a huge KT Tunstall fan. That being said, this one doesn't do it for me. It's just plain, flat out boring! I'm sorry and I know I'll get slammed by fans… but it's my opinion (which I am entitled to). It wasn't a waste of money but it won't get a lot of play time for me.

Exactly what I expected

I am a huge KT fan, and loved Tiger Suit's dance-techno sound but after hearing about her father dying and going through a divorce, I knew this record would be about her working through all these emotions. It is incredibly raw and very beautiful. I just lost one of my best friends this past June 1st, (she was just diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma on March 19th), and I can already see that this cd will be very therapeutic dealing with the shock and feelings of loss. "Feel it all," is a beautiful song and I sobbed the first time I heard it. It does takes a few listens to this cd but I do like it. I know this is the record she needed to make at this time.

Classic KT

Classic KT. Sad, happy, impressively insightful, but never depressive. Just an incredibly honest and beautiful expression of what she feels.

Anyway, "Feel it All" will be one of the best song she has ever done.

Born in 1975, Scottish singer/songwriter KT Tunstall — not short for anything, the KT is just an alternate spelling of Katie — comes from the quaint university town of St. Andrews. Due in part by being adopted at birth, her imagination and creative side flourished from early on as she thought about how her life could have gone in any given direction. As she was growing up, her physicist father would take Tunstall and her brothers into the St. Andrews observatory to look at the sky, thus...
