, Staff

With a new album ready to hit store shelves at the end of the month, KT Tunstall will embark on a fall tour of North America. The Scottish singer-songwriter will make stop in Boston on Monday, November 29 for a show at the House of Blues. Tickets are now on sale through Live Nation for $25 and $35. Hurricane Bells will open the show.

Tunstall will release her third studio album, Tiger Suit, on September 28. The eco-minded musician began demo-ing songs for Tiger Suit (a title inspired by a dream) in 2009 at the solar-powered recording studio she built at her home in the English countryside. After pre-production at London’s Sarm Studios, Tunstall traveled to Berlin to record the ablum over the course of three weeks in January at the world-famous Hansa Studios. Finishing touches were completed at London’s RAK Studios. The album was produced by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele).

Describing the music as “Nature Techno” (due to its blend of organic instrumentation and electronic, dance-friendly textures), 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, both of whom contributed to her 2007 album Drastic Fantastic and its predecessor, 2006’s platinum-seller Eye To The Telescope.

Several new tunes off Tiger Suit including lead single “Fade Like A Shadow”, “(Still A) Weirdo” and “Push That Knot Away” are now streaming on Tunstall’s MySpace.
