KT Tunstall Premieres The Video For ‘Hard Girls

0 158

KT Tunstall returns with a brand new video for “Hard Girls.”   Directed by Chris Turner (JAY Z, HURTS), the video sees Mel C and KT as opposing rally drivers battling it out on the track.

The new single is taken from her fifth studio album KIN out now via Caroline Records. The album is available participating retailers, here.

Two years ago, KT Tunstall thought she was done with music: “As an artist I feel like I died,” she says. “I stopped. I gave up. I didn’t want to do it anymore.” She put her stuff in storage and bought a little house in Venice Beach, California and enrolled in the Sundance Institute’s elite Film Composers Lab. It was a turning point in her life.

Two years later KIN was born. Produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Fitz and the Tantrums, Air, M83 and more), and written and recorded by KT in LA, it exemplifies the very best of guitar pop. “The truth is, I’ve finally made peace with being a pop songwriter,” KT says. “This record was very much embracing my dharma as an artist, which is to write positive songs that have muscle, but also show their vulnerability.”

It has been over ten years since KT released her multi-platinum debut, Eye To The Telescope, and in KIN, KT sees its full bodied and blooded follow up. The album’s new focused sound is exemplified by the teaser track ‘Evil Eye’; a stripped back, primal rock ‘n’ roll track that seeded the whole record. The album’s lead single ‘Maybe It’s A Good Thing’ shows KT in top form: a moment in life captured in a bright, powerful pop song with an irresistible and unforgettable melody.

The diverse collection also includes a duet with KT fan James Bay, the raucous rebellion of ‘It Took Me So Long To Get Here, But Here I Am’, ‘Run On Home’, the call to arms of ‘Hard Girls’, and the beautiful album closer ‘Love Is An Ocean’.

KT has released five albums internationally, to date: Eye to the Telescope (2004), KT Tunstall’s Acoustic Extravaganza (2006), Drastic Fantastic (2007), Tiger Suit (2010) and Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon (2013). Her music has also figured prominently in film and television including The Devil Wear’s Prada, Grey’s Anatomy, Winter’s Tale and many more. She has won a BRIT Award, an Ivor Novello Award and earned both Grammy and Mercury Prize nominations.
