Two years ago, KT Tunstall thought she was done with music. Not done as in she’d never again play guitar or sing, but done playing professionally, at least for the foreseeable future. “As an artist I feel like I died,” she says. “I didn’t want to do it anymore.” It had been ten years since she’d released her multi-platinum debut, ‘Eye To The Telescope’ (2004), and twenty-some years since she started playing gigs as a teenager back home in St. Andrews, Scotland. She’d lived a decade in obscurity and a decade in the brightest of limelights, releasing three more critically acclaimed albums — ‘Drastic Fantastic’ (2007,) ‘Tiger Suit’ (2010,) and ‘Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon’ (2013) — and playing everywhere from the rooftops of splashy Las Vegas hotels to Giant’s Stadium. She’d been nominated for a Grammy, won a BRIT and the Ivor Novello, and seen her songs used everywhere from opening credits of “The Devil Wears Prada” to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign theme. She’d had a good run, Tunstall thought, but it was time to take a serious time out. “I was utterly burnt out,” she says.
