This song, “Fade Like a Shadow,” is “an exorcism of a bad relationship,” KT Tunstall told us. She said that with a smirk and followed it with a throaty laugh. She’s an easy one to like. You can imagine sharing a single malt whiskey with her at one of the olds pubs in Scotland where she learned her craft.
Just watch out, as she warns in the song, for that seducer with “snake hips swinging.” Could be dangerous.
This is the single from her new “Tiger Suit” album and you can see why. It’s driving, catchy, radio-friendly. And Tunstall sings and plays it like she means it, especially in this acoustic version she did for us.
