Interesting choice for a first single. I do laud the choice as it is generally more likely to lead off with a more up-tempo catchy single. As much as I like catchy up-tempo songs, I will take quality as a whole over a catchy hook. Listen/watch for yourself:
Apparently the new album will be more country-folk, versus Tiger Suit that was nature techno as KT herself put it.
IECM’s country-folk tinged undercurrents grew out of KT’s decision to travel to Tucson, Arizona to record with producer and alt-country leading light
Howe Gelb (aka Giant Sand). KT describes the album as “full of songs from the heart,” adding “I followed my path of truth and ended up in a different place.”
IECM is released June 10 in her native U.K., and August 6 Stateside.
