Kate Tempest has announced her new album, ‘The Book Of Traps And Lessons’.
Due out on 14th June via American Recordings/ Fiction, it marks the first time Kate and long-time collaborator Dan Carey have worked with US producer Rick Rubin.
The release is preceded by lead single ‘Firesmoke’, which you can hear below.
“I think of the song like a cleansing moment in the wider context of the record,” says Kate, “in the same way that a relationship can be a cleansing moment in the wider context of a life. A kind of a turning point. I wrote it for my woman. Inspired by her and everything that falling in love with her has taught me.”
Kate will perform the album in its entirety at an intimate event at Catford Broadway Theatre on 18th June.
