KT Tunstall has had a recurring dream since she was a child. She sees a tiger in her garden and goes outside to stroke it. She returns indoors and is seized by the fear that she could have been killed. Over the years, it has occurred to her that the reason the tiger responds so passively is that she herself is disguised as a tiger. That she is wearing a tiger suit.
Tunstall has tapped into that childlike boldness in the making of her third album, Tiger Suit, which heralds the beginning of a new musical adventure for the multi-platinum, Scottish-born singer and songwriter. Organic instrumentation is blended with dance-friendly textures, the results of which Tunstall has dubbed as "Nature Techno" to encapsulate the album's collision of raw, upfront rootsiness and sleek electronic textures. "Think Eddie Cochrane meets [British electronic duo] Leftfield," she suggests. "The songs exist in other worlds for me, and I was trying to evoke a sense of place through how they sounded. I really went out of my comfort zone and wandered off further than expected. It made me realize I can do anything. There are no rules, there are no constraints, it's just about what you've got the balls to do."
