KT Tunstall has officially released her brand new single, ‘Human Being’ – listen below.
The disco-rock track is taken from the Scottish singer-songwriter’s sixth studio album, Wax, which was released earlier this year. The album is the 2nd in a trilogy of records that explore themes of spirit, body, and mind.
The single opens with an arpeggiated synth sound, over which KT Tunstall sings: ”I wanna be, everything for you all the time, but I’m just a human being”.
A slightly-fuzzed, spaced-aged guitar riff then leads nicely into the opening verse, setting the tone for the rest of what is a confident, melodic strut, filled with attitude.
The BRIT Award winner also directed the video for ‘Human Being’, which features shots of young, martial artist Eccaia Sampson.
Speaking about the video, KT Tunstall said: “My vision for the video was to create a mirror between a young, crazy- talented, bold little girl, and link that burgeoning energy to a band of warrioress women who have achieved their goal of turning their young talents into something very real and powerful as working musicians and performers.
”All of us living these lives through following our dreams and keeping that punk spirit we all had as kids, but always inevitably vulnerable as humans beings.”
Watch the video for ‘Human Being’ now:
KT Tunstall will perform with an all-female band across the UK in Spring 2019, including shows at The Roundhouse, London and The Dome, Brighton.
