Episode 66: KT Tunstall

“Suddenly I See”

SongExploder66

Singer/songwriter KT Tunstall released her debut album in 2004. It was nominated for a Mercury Prize. The song “Suddenly I See” from that record was a hit on the radio, and it’s been used in the soundtracks of big movies and television shows. But the song was originally written back before KT Tunstall had a record deal, when she was a struggling street musician, living in a small apartment in North London. In this episode, which was recorded live at the Sundance Film Festival, KT breaks down how she made the song, with help from producer Steve Osborne.

You can buy “Suddenly I See” on iTunes.
