Multi-platinum singer-songwriter and Grammy Award nominee KT Tunstall will launch a headlining tour of North America this fall that begins on October 31st in Portland, OR and criss-crosses the country throughout November before culminating in a show in New York City at Terminal 5 on December 1st. New York’s Hurricane Bells will appear as support on all dates, which are listed below. Tickets go on-sale beginning Sept 10th.
The tour will support her brand-new album Tiger Suit, which will be released by Virgin Records on October 5th, 2010. Recorded in January at Berlin’s world-famous Hansa Studios, Tiger Suit heralds the beginning of a new musical adventure for Tunstall. Organic instrumentation is blended with dance-friendly textures, the results of which she has dubbed “Nature Techno” to encapsulate the album’s collision of raw, upfront rootsiness and sleek electronic textures.
KT will perform the album’s first single, “Fade Like A Shadow,” October 5th on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The single was released to all digital retailers on August 10th and is already Top 20 at Triple A radio.

Maximum Performance will run in early October, and a live session for CBS/Last.FM’s Summer Concert Series will be posted on September 9th at http://lastfmdiscover.radio.com/shows/summer-sessions/.
Tiger Suit was produced by Jim Abbiss, known for his work with Arctic Monkeys, Adele, Kasabian, Editors, and many more. 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 Tunstall’s previous albums, 2007’s Top 10 Drastic Fantastic and its predecessor, 2006’s platinum-seller Eye To The Telescope.
