KT Tunstall Performs "Uummannaq"

Here’s KT Tunstall on stage at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco during her current U.S. tour. This is KT in full “tiger suit” – the term she uses to describe the “armor” of confidence and swagger she puts on to perform. It’s also the title of her new album.

Like her heroes, Chrissie Hynde and Patti Smith, the Scottish singer likes to rock the house with a song that has something to say. “Uummannaq” is about the Arctic in a time of global warming “as the temperature rises all around/To the sound of a ticking bomb.”

Segment presented by Sound Tracks.
