KT Tunstall Slips Into Her ‘Tiger Suit’

KT Tunstall has gotten her “nature techno” together and is taking it on the road, beginning Oct. 31 in Portland, Ore.

“Nature Techo” is how Tunstall refers to the tracks on her upcoming album, Tiger Suit, which lands in stores Oct. 5. Recorded in Berlin’s Hansa Studios, Tiger Suit is described as featuring “organic instrumentation” that is “blended with dance-friendly textures.” But if that’s too many words to remember, Tunstall likes to refer to the album’s “rootsiness” combined with electronic textures simply as “nature techno.”
