Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall burst onto the public consciousness in 2004 with her gritty debut album ‘Eye to the Telescope’, a provocative sonic mesh of heartfelt pop, rootsy, electric blues, and left-field alt-rock. Eye spawned three hit singles — the Grammy-Award nominated “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree,” “Suddenly I See,” and “Other Side of the World” — all of which became omnipresent on radio, television, movies, and the Internet. Thanks to the multi-media exposure, ‘Eye’ is certified platinum in the U.S., with worldwide sales exceeding 3.5 million copies.
The follow-up, ‘Drastic Fantastic’, was released by Virgin Records on September 18th, 2007. It showcases the 31-year-old’s growth as both a songwriter and musician on songs like the thumping “Hold On,” the rollicking “Saving My Face,” the jazz-inflected “Someday Soon,” and the frisky pop gem “I Don’t Want You Now.” “I wanted to be braver,” Tunstall says of the album. “I wanted to push the musicality. You can’t let previous success scare you away from moving on.”
Well the world will turn if you're ready or not.
Oh, yes the world will turn if you're ready or not.

Lil Bit of Feel GoodJust the sound of your voice
Drowning out all my noise
When you call my name mysteriously
All the source to let me see

Love’s like a runway but which one do I love more
No emotional baggage, just replace it with Dior
Love’s like a runway, so what’s all the fussing for
Let’s stop chasing them boys and shop some more.
