"On and on. That was a riff that I'd written probably more than ten years ago. And I wanted to write a song about Max. The character from where the wild things are from the Morrison macbook. And I just couldn't get I couldn't and I was like I love this. Riff by cannot get a song over and I knew for wax. It was a great riff. I wanted to kind of use more riffs. Silk can get song made the record with Nick in his garage. The label in my manager just went through. This sounds like a three piece in a garage and I went. Yeah and they went no. It's not bosh enough. It's not going to get on the radio and you WANNA get on the radios okay but then we talked about maybe doing some additional production in the guys that I ended up with. Were called my riot Tim Brandon Roy Carr. And they're just wizards we bill all this cool stuff to just support what we already had still sounds like the Garish but just like mushrooms. It was so cool it just became really like exciting and we had one day writing together me and my riot in their studio and I was like so guys. I have this riff. I've had for so long and I don't know what to do with it. And we started working on it and we were still struggling and by about four o'clock we had this verse. We'd written a chorus and I didn't like the chorus and we suddenly when hang on a minute? That verse is of course that never happens by the way usually the whole thing is that of course you use that as the Versi right another. Gore's he used that as a middle eight and then you write another chorus. This time. The verse was actually the Closet Chorus and we then wrote that verse together which was much more rhythmic and now. I absolutely love that song but took years to get to the point. So maybe don't throw in the bin but just accept it might have. Its own little journey of actually getting somewhere in the end and you might need some help. Kwan one hi there. Thanks for for this afternoon. I work in music but I'm not song and I've got this romantic notion that Time place mood whether all of these things you know. There's an intersection where everything just feels right. And you create the most notable song of that moment. Have you reached perfect formula a moment in your career today? Yeah I think you're buying on. It's absolutely true and I think it can catch you completely by surprise. There's a song on the new record Co. backlash and vinegar which really fond of and I was sitting on the tour bus during the winter. We were in Austin Texas and we were playing. I don't know if you've seen the documentary on. Netflix is called Holy. Hell and it was a cult that built a theater in Austin. And that's where we were playing so the Colt is actually not you know active anymore. It was a very awful story but some of the cult members who recovered are still running this. The're but it's spooky man it's weird. It's a beautiful place. It's up on a hill and weirdly. It was raining it was really raining in Austin. And it's Kinda humid but it was a very spooky and I was sitting on the tour bus thankfully had guitar lying around and just wrote the song backlash and Vinegar and actually. Interestingly with that one when you talk about chords James Bay James Bay was actually the one the one collaborative I did on Ken and it was just amazing right with him and we wrote the song to way and it had a d major. I'm playing my d major news like okay. Do you ever thought of doing day. Major Different Way James can't hear you through your hair any so he showed me this new record which is played more as a bar chords shape so this is normally and.

"A bit rhythmic and even though that's not on the recording everyone knows stole it from Bo Diddley. They know what it is. Okay anyone anything they want to ask. Kate's heat them concise one of that. Hello I thank you for your singing Hank you you said that you moved away to maybe look at film music. Is that something that your still pursuing? And what other things do you want to do? Is a song writer. Yeah absolutely I love it. I really love it. I was very honored to be accepted into the Sundance Film Institute Composers. Lob when I first went over to America and it was just extraordinary. It was Harry Gregson Williams James Newton Howard and Alan Silvestri. Who are the bike to the future music? So they came up and she doesn't. It was a two week very very intensive course of kind of deep diving into film composition and I I am doing is quite hard world to break into. It doesn't really help you. That you've got a well known name. They're just interested whether you've scored a successful foam. But I was very pleased. I got nominated for short film recently called late. It was a kind of ninety s rock band style score but another short film done Kobe. She wished to see him which isn't quite yet is entirely electronic. It's using a rally seaboard keyboard which is a really weird silicon very cool new instruments but it's almost horror and absolutely unrelated to the music. I usually make so. It's an opportunity to really leave the formula. Songwriting and leave my name behind. And it's actually really lovely to work for someone you're working for the director and as a solo artist. You're always in the driving seat actually quite nice to be part of the collaborative bigger projects. Really exciting. I'm also starting to delve a little bit into musical theatre which I wouldn't have done before but because musical theater is really changing at the moment. That's exciting and I've never really written for other people and that's something that I'd be interested in doing. It takes a lot of skill to work for someone else needs and not just right what you would do but film I love angle always Yeah Hello Hi. I'm eve collaborated with some amazing musicians. I've seen in your instagram stories. Jane's Valentine and then of saved on stuff James Bay. Yeah is there anyone still on your hitlist where you're like? I'd love to work with Jack White As we mentioned earlier I think he'd be someone I would learn enormous from. I'd also love to write with Chrissie. Hinde as she's a brilliant writer one of my favorite artists but also terrifying so she was on the simple minds the pretenders as well I just like is so probably would be like chatting away and she'd say I saw this film. Oh I love I love films you what do you like like? I think. She's just an amazing right earned musician so she would be great person department. Hello I'm I was always amazed by the fact that when you started out the major label with your career you managed to arrange so you could make records in between Records Cousteau Extravaganza in the Valentine record. Was that your plan from the start. Was that because you were prolific or because those afforded a different kind of songwriting. What was that is a great question? We were really playing it by ear. And My label boss at my first label. You've called Shops Job Putra. And he was fucking mental he signed so solid crew the Jewish bond and he had Nitin Soni and he in one of the kind of underground Asian. Dj's when that all serving ninety s war is going on. Why am I on this label? But they were the only label who are interested and they were really passionate about. He said he thinks he knew it was going to be big. But I don't think anyone thought that either the telescope was GONNA do. What did I MISS? Twenty nine year old book singer from Scotland. I mean it was not it. Didn't look good. An Acoustic Extravaganza really came out of the fact that because that record was such a big success. It was taking too long before making the second records. We really felt like we should put something i. It cracked America year later and so it was like three years before. I'm even working on album tea. So we just Steve. I mean the ban just went to sky. And it's where I'm from and so I suppose it was just bringing it back down to roots and making acoustic record. There's a lot of people's favorite record that album an acoustic extravaganza was actually music night. It started in Edinburgh before my deal and so that was enormous to that night. And and I've done a case extravaganza two nights. I think I'll keep doing them. Because I think it's an important part of who I am is just that Campfire vibe. It's also really helpful because in scarlet. Julep as well because sometimes if I make a record like tiger the third record made and Berlin. It's like a bunch of electronics on it. I'd written some really lovely ballads. But they were just GonNa get trampled being on that record so they needed a another place. So but with releasing stuff now you need to have an extra track writings and x one for spotify an extra one for Japan. An extra one for you know. Harry who lives next door is actually quite difficult now to have enough material for over but I love it. I'm into it so try and else I L O so when you're writing songs whether it's called Alert Stereo get stuck in a leap of using the same kind of topics codes and if so how do you get out of the leap rule. Dot is when writing with someone else can be really useful. Actually so if I've got a good riff Oregon title or a good motif usually a chord progression with some words. That's a good. If you can't get anywhere with it yourself to sit in a room with someone else and see if you can come up with something different more often than not. I would ditch something if that's happening and just start something. Fresh a really good example of that is a song on the new album called in this body which has got one of my favorite rips. I've ever written on it's Super Dome but it's so fun and it goes like this supermassive keeps Adar's realizes this negative emotion on inside. It's me outlasts so violin. Gilibert another get the surgery and.

"You and it was surprisingly not very shit for my first song on piano and it was about being cheated on and I'd never had a boyfriend I was thinking about. I was just so upset that miles had gaudy. Maxwell Caulfield wasn't it? My let's say never knew I was. I was always more of a call bs. That's like ten points in a pub quiz Mazen so rarely we kind of have Aaron spelling to thank for your single. 'cause I piano lessons on about four was desperate to play instruments by never really got to grips with piano. It was never a natural instrument for me. I mean not what I just played. You is just so completely rudimentary. I never find myself. Master it as a creative expressive instrument. I got decent playing for exams and everything but what was amazing about. It was actually learning the theory and learning chord progression intervals and all of that was extremely useful. And then I just taught myself guitar but when I started writing on piano so cheesy all my songs are so cheesy. I just didn't have the natural ability to just go outside the box a bit more. What was being seen as I go guitar as I? Oh my thank God so we wanted to open it up for some questions but before we do because we just close on suddenly I see. Yeah I mean that's a song that's been so important for your career and if you go spotify is the most streamed song think of yours still. Avello and have to say that was amazing for me. Getting an Novello. Is You know it's a really special award. I was so proud to go up there on my own one person instead of twenty which seems to be the order that they neither just so many people right together and it's not to say that you can't write fantastic collaborative songs but I was very proud of just sitting in a basement in oak north London and the crazy thing about that song as I wrote in about half an hour inspired by an image. Wasn't it. Yeah so it's the song is entirely a by the Rhode Mapplethorpe photograph of Patty Smith on the cover of horses records and I think the idea of that pitchers stayed with me a lot through the years because the thing I really like about is that she's not trying. It's very very easy. She's just being and it's almost challenging in. Its lack of effort is going what were you. This is who I am and I've seen now covered before but that night I was looking at going. Wow I really would love to be in a place where I'm not trying anymore because I just been trying trying trying trying and it's a great place to be trying. It's a commendable place to be but from a creative point of view. You're much better off just being and doing rather than grasping grasping grasping and a lot of the time. When I was trying to get somewhere as an artist the trying didn't actually work. You know. Try and get the in our people up to Edinburgh try and put on a GIG and try and get people in. It often didn't work and actually when things did work just because I was really really enjoying playing not say that you shouldn't try of course but it's being aware that really. I think the thing that people are excited by most as you just killing it enjoying yourself and being really overtaken by what you're doing and what you're sharing so it's funny because I don't I really don't know if I would write a song like this and I don't know if a song like this would be successful like it was then because it's so innocent it so sweet sweet doesn't seem to be the order of the day at the moment but it's so simple to have a song where you recognize the first two bars gold and it's hard to when you've added. Song it does that. You're just like I do bars. I T bar.

"So much more kind of poetic than maybe. I would usually right before so really been interested to hear the sorts of things that have influenced your approach to language for example. I read somewhere that you were inspired by role dogs yes ambassadors use something massively so dollars a really big one for me so my dad also had a very very limited collection of music he had some tapes and he had Beethoven Mozart Billie holiday the chariots of fire sign track. And a guy called Tom. Lehrer and that was it. Tom Lehrer was a harvard physicist. He did kind of Gilbert and Sullivan style satirical songs. You've really isn't he? Did that. Table of elements soon. I did 'em lithium oxygen and the thing that connects Tom. Lehrer Role Dow doctors use unsettled street in the muppet show and Tom. Lehrer actually ended up writing for sesame street which is not surprising. Think the music I put from not show was exceptional. It's amazing songwriting is. The rhythm of the language is always perfect. There's never any hangover. It's perfect perfect. Timing to the point where I would as a kid get quite angry if there was like extra syllables in the line and be like basics. It doesn't fit. We wrote some lear or less of rejection litterbox. Was it perfect wittily room and so I think that's definitely something that has stayed with me is wanting to find that rhythmic perfection and lyrics and our work quite hard to make and it sought to good feeling when you do it. You're like yes if you crocker a really difficult one or you're using like a really odd word that you don't think you'd usually fit in a song. I was Gonna say something else that cropped up in our deeper search and was that you first song was inspired by storyline. Dynasties actually play you. Actually M online found.

"And he'd written the cords and then saved them on his computer couple of years ago and then had come into the studio. The next morning David boy had died that night and so he just renamed the folder. The Night Bowie died. Because that's when he wrote them and then he forgot about them and then when. I went into the studio to work with him on some songs he's going through some ideas and he finds is following when I wrote those chords that night and then find out eat passed away the next morning and we can change the name and I was like actually. That's a wicked song title. And I would not usually choose that kind of thing as a song title because it might have felt a bit cheesy but it was such a kind of natural thing and it was strange because actually that morning that he renamed those chords was the first more. It was January eleventh. That was the first morning. I'd gone into start recording Ken so it was a nice kind of connection on those chords. Eerily reminiscent of Bowie era. Yeah definitely I think and I think that because we decided upon going down that road and it was just both of us saying how it was just such a jolt when he died. Because you just didn't think he was ever GonNa die. You know. I think the theme is resonated throughout your work. There wasn't it. I mean invisible empire which you mentioned. There's a Song. I'm the Yellow. Flower is a a song about someone you lost which. I find to be absolutely stolen song Yankee so much. Yeah we'll yellow flowers really interesting one. Because it's probably the only Song I've written where I actually wrote it as a poem. I left alone for a while and then came back to it and put music to it and it was a really weird experience because because my brain usually does music and words at the same time when I came back to write music to the words it felt like someone else had written the words. My brain is going on. These aren't this isn't a song so it was really a cool experience. I'd like to do more of that. It was I'd written in my journal as a poem about my friend. Pepple pass away from cancer and she was very blonde and and her grandma was a really amazing Gardner and she'd always the selling fine flour had always been the one that reminded her of pepper. So but I'm play a little bit because the the lyrics are really different from what I do usually right wrong. But yeah kind of much more proactive. The still the pulse survives the conscious Cam of our conversation. Lovely as you see the name. Strain the radiation strips of Light. The life either side looking to live with.

"Through all the chord changes. So it's just something that's not gonNA clash basically and I honestly. It's a really years lyrical song. It was a real kind of process of automatic writing and I can kind of pick apart the lyrics to explain what they mean. But it's pretty weird the lyrics of that song. It's really funny because if you hit on a song. Some high resumes musically and it's obviously got the chorus of no no. You're not the one for me which I think is quite refreshing. People don't care just sing along as great and it's funny. I was touring with simple minds last summer. Which was just incredible watching masters at work. But you know I was singing. Promised you a miracle with them because we did a acoustic according weird Larry. So don't you forget about me? Weird lyrics not straightforward at all and quite non-linear but often. I think McCartney does this as well that sometimes you'll write songs with sang's sound good with the sewn and I've got this thing actually vocal no on my phone. It goes it goes Goes Eater Eagle Eagle Latin? I'm saying Ettelaat Eagle alter it just feels really good and I still haven't written any words. Actually I will or just going to have a massive single Ito. Eagle often will anyone who listened to the podcast will nowhere so because for a good title as well and causes views. One berim one from the new album. That really left outskirts was the night that Bowie died. When did if you talk about that story with that song? I was unaware. Really of Nick. Mccarthy is a writer Anita he had obviously contributed a lot to the Franz Ferdinand stuff. But you don't know the machinations of how band rights together and he's an exceptional songwriter. Amazing and I think we're quite similar in that. We both really enjoy very traditional songwriting. So we love intro verse. Chorus Verse Chorus Chorus End. It's just great. It's still a formula that I feel so excited by a neither. I live in America. You can also do the pre. The pre is little section before the chorus that gets you from the verse chorus. The Rian true before verse too. But it's a very simple formula and neck. I think is a huge fan of that also but we just both love taking a left turn in places so it's doing things that you're not quite expecting whilst at the same time giving you a weird sense of familiarity that you feel like you've maybe heard the song before and he had written this chord progression. I think it was the verse. So it's nice change to that e suspended.

"We did it very old school songs. Like human being Evil Eye yes. Qatar centric songs. Yeah I'm a huge fan of all the contemporary musicians he sticks out to me is an iconic last. I feel like in fifty years time. People will be looking at the work that he has done in the same way as the artists from the sixties seventies. The I adore. I think that his I is extremely good. Qualley meaningful timeless and his recording skills are are brilliant. You can listen to his music quietly and it still sounds like a rock and roll geic nuts. Amazing one of the most annoying things for me is when people come to a GIG and see. I like your records. But you're gigs. Amazing along shit hide. Do I get my Gig on records and it's really hard to capture that energy. Get lightning in a bottle on an album and I feel like I got the closest I've ever got to it with this recent one with wax because we played basically live in a garage. That's the VIBE. Can you give us a sense of how you might write a song on the guitar? We'll come up with a riff something like human being. So I've found that a really good thing to do is to make sure that there's always a guitar where you are just lying about so I always have guitar lying about on the bus. There's one right here nice to meet you. Get these really who wo- Guitar Hooks and I've ended up having them in quite a few different rooms in the house on. Always try and remember to just have a guitar hanging. Because just you're boiling the kettle. And then you're like And if the guitar isn't there you go. I'll do it later and then you never do it. And I've also learned that if you have an amazing idea three o'clock in the morning fucking get out your beds because you won't remember always forget and I always wake up incredibly annoyed because I knew it was good so now I do get up and just bless the voice notes on the iphone. It's an amazing tool. I've really find that a brilliant contemporary tool for for some right and getting ideas this me walking down. Lino next to Maine road singing or on a plane of done it you know. And it's it's it's great. It's a lot of ideas that would otherwise be forgotten. Women spoke with the idea of the waterproof whiteboard terrain songs in the show. I ask of you any further down the road I I said I can't even remember just about focused. A lot of ideas come in the shower. Oh that's a great idea. Okay what are brief whiteboard? I love it. You're not the only guest you suggested that. Actually I think there would be a Lopez's maybe yeah yeah. I actually don't sing in the shower. I actually don't really sing much at all. Like arranged is or I actually. Don't listen to music very much at home. It's very much sparked by that so I feel like doing right now but I'm certainly not. So many kinda comes home and puts hysteria on straightaway. And you've always seemed very self sufficient in your writing when you broke through with black horse and the Cherry Tree. I mean that sounds got more hooks in the cloakroom and they basically How would you if you're able to demonstrate this book? Yeah how do you go about developing all those parts so black horses? Basically the sound of me learning how to use my leap pedal so I had been playing open MIC nights for about ten years at that point. This is what teeth as an three and I had just signed. My record deal took about a year to get things moving to get the record done and I was going on the road eye to the telescope but because I was in new artists the label by then did provide her support but not to the point where I be able to have a big band or anything. I had to go out and do my own thing and I was just so bored of the kind of I didn't really told the kind of depressing conventional style open Mike thing and it's not to say that there's some amazing material that fits with that scene. I just don't relate to it really. The core of what I did always was very tied up with Rhythm and Blues and rock and roll and Sassine Israeli boot stump and I was singing with a Jewish hip hop band called Voi- and they were they needed a guest vocalist and a top line writer with van. They were on the label. Who eventually signed me relentless and the labels said. Why don't you come and join Jewish hip hop band while you decide whether you want to sign to us? I thought okay. So more chic. Who Is there signed guy? We were in rehearsal. I was telling him is kind of what can I do to make? I WanNa Bang my feet or something. And he said I've got this pedal in my bag. Do you WANNA try it. And it was the head. Rush was the first headdress. And it only has one imp so we had to kind of work crazy way of putting my vocal in my guitar into a Little Mini Mixer and then mixing it and then taking it was like prince level self mixing from the stage and my I'd seen people use it for guitar and a bit for voice but not for both. I'm my kind of Eureka. Moment was going with just batch my guitar. Surely it's GonNa like a junket and I- bashed it and it would do and it sounded awful and so we realized it was going to need a load of queuing and then we did get it signing flat. You've gotta take out one hundred and fifty two hundred hearts if any of your interest basically take all the mid a queue of it. So it's just a very flat kick saint what I wanted to know what this loop pedal was. Was there a vocal part? That could go all the way through the song and work all the way. Three and of course is actually an anomaly because it is just the same key in chords really through the whole song whereas usually my songwriting will meander. Loyal Digress. A lot so a low of other songs I use the pedal with it's just for beat. There's very few songs where I can actually use a a musical motif that works the whole time so it was really predominantly about rhythm of getting beat going but it's still important to be able to his own without needing a piece of gear. I'm a big believer that it's going to resonate the most if you can play it and many many different ways so I suppose my rhythm style. I started as a picker but once I started busking realize I wasn't GonNa make any money picking a nylon string guitar with no amp so I started using a pick and learnt using seals during so the basic start of the song is just the rhythm being played on a single string. Love basically trying to play bass on the guitars. The beginning is and so all that is the same with the song hold on which is on the second album. So.

"Hello Hello Welcome. That's quite funny that you picked that lineup by the funnies because it was I said it in barons in Glasgow when we were recording a live album on the tour and finally is a very endearing to call someone in Glasgow. If you're being an idiot appeared fanny and it just came out. It was unplanned. It's on my live album so yeah I think is gonNA glass that one great. Hashtag stike five eight member to write the word five. So you've been based out in La for some time now and that's obviously a very different culture. Has that impacted on your song race in Seoul what you say. Yeah I think location is always GONNA be important ingredient in what material you come up with and I'd actually go night to La to sort of start again. Because I'd been through some really difficult stuff here in the UK a dotted past divorce. Everything owned just really needed a fresh start. I wanted some sunshine and I wanted to be somewhere just in this of replenishing environment. London's quite overwhelming very fast place city. Oh it was found it quite difficult to relax in London and I gone to Venice. Beach was onto an. I'd been going to La for a long time tour but it was the first time few years ago I went to Venice beach and it was the first place. I'd been where everyone is just bombing around every day of the week. You don't have to wait for the weekend and that's actually really helpful for what we did. Because we don't have weekends in London if I had a Wednesday off. Everyone's just giving me evil looks because I've got time off whereas there it's just a very laid back quite an alternative culture in that part of La and La's basically like twitter. It just totally depends who you follow. You can have an extremely different experience living in different parts of La knowing different people. It's very separate all these areas so you can. You can really have a completely opposed experience of living there from someone else and so I chose Venice and I was going to take a break. I felt very stagnated. It just felt like I was caught in an eddy of finding the mixer. He's mixing everybody's staff of being in competition with you know inevitably any other female musicians that anyone could think of. And I just wasn't very inspired to make a record so I've actually gone out to L. A. Really to study film composition which I did but it was really just listening to west coast rock sixties and seventies row. Tom Petty fleetwood. Mac Neil Young Joni that got me writing some real kind of Air Punch big choruses again and the world had sort of become darker at that stage that was like two thousand fifteen things were on the turn and so if I was writing similar stuff folk inspired stuff like I did on invisible empire crescent me my fourth record. I probably would have to shelve it and waited but I was writing these really. Big Pop. Choruses about overcoming difficulty so it felt like quite helpful thing to put out into the world. I was excited to do it. Yeah we're always fascinated by right zoo. Kinda take a break from when we spoke to front healy. He said it's Kinda like select the field life. Follow for Awhile and I think that's really important. I think that's why I mean. Some people can smoke fags burgers every day until they're one hundred and five and they're fine. Everyone's different but it certainly works for me to not be constantly trying to keep up a level of output people often ask about writer's block and I actually watched them a star is born. The other day was it as far as born. No it was the wife. It was that foam the wife. Brilliant Glenn Close Foam. And there's a line in it where they're at this really pretentious party. No it wasn't even the wife. Can you ever forgive me? It was one of the Oscar nominated movies when Melissa. Mccarthy goes to this book party. And someone's asking this really pretentious right or do you ever get writer's block and he goes well. I don't subscribe to writer's block I was like. Oh my God. I say that it sound so pretentious but I actually don't. I just think it's quite arrogant to expect your creative mind to just do what you tell it to do. I don't understand really where the gift of some rain comes from. And so if people ask me that question I'm like look how many books how many films how many plays how many museums of you said that you want to go and see Redo Watch ingest and you've done use that time. Fill yourself with some stuff. Get some input or sit and do nothing in your Pyjamas. Also very useful. I find but you shall time for creativity. Oh that sounds like a bit of a paradox book. Do you put a new. Yes so it's a great excuse to go on. Adventures. I love right now albums. I love albums that one piece of vinyl because I think that four or five minute cut off point is actually a really good of point for how much music you can ingest at one time. The same for podcasts. Yeah good to know. I'll keep my answers slightly shorter but yeah I think albums are a really extraordinary form of making music. Even if you're not I mean I'm in the middle of the matic are making three albums together in a trilogy at the moment. But even if you're not doing that there's a there's a familial kind of hermetically sealed world within which that record is made and so many people will come up to me and say that their favorite track is an album track. And IT WASN'T I. It would have been the single at first but Israeli side that we're kind of moving. I'm not a lot of people I know are not but in general. There is a move away from albums. And I think that that's a shame because it kind of is taking away that deep dive on a snapshot of an artist's life at that time so tell us about that idea that you've been chewing Kim and walks. Did you have a unifying concept of the trilogy before you even started? Nope that was the thing that was really funny trilogy. You would think that you would decide upon that before you started. And I didn't and I wrote can and it was so very healing experience. In that record it was coming with kind of really Fu blast Mojo but really feeling like it was the beginning of the second half of my life so I came to. Kim is quite a different person than I had been up until that point and in many ways the fourth record invisible empire crescent meeting. I kind of see funeral music. It's cold these titles because my dad died right in the middle of those sessions and it was. He wasn't very well but it wasn't expected. And then I kind of had this wake up where I just went on Gordon with the wrong person. I'm sort of in the wrong life. And so yeah. And this is when procurement was this kind of funeral march to that happening and so then became this real phoenix from the ashes. It was this real beginning of something completely new for me and you know it's very easy to take a show. L. A. N. It's completely deserved. It's total bullshit van. You know people go. Oh my God. You're amazing you've got to do the movie. Oh they never called me ever again but there is also this amazing element to la where it's really is the vanguard of a low of new thoughts from health to filmmaking to the arts. You don't get laughed at for trying weird stuff. And there's a brilliant Frank Lloyd Wright Amion love he's an intrinsic part of La's architecture and kind of culture and but he says if you turn America on its site everything falls in California and so you just get a low of Weirdos and a low of them eccentric people and the thing I particularly like about L. A. Is Wild in many ways but actually like literally you can drive twenty minutes and be at the top of a mountain and be killed by a lion and that's the truth and there's Koyo Cheese and eagles and it really is untamed and it's also completely untamed in Mississippi as well because there's not as with guns in their cars so it's just a really extreme place so meditation had been a big part an always wanted to get into yoga just healing myself and getting really healthy and it's very easy to do there and I did and I really enjoyed it. Meditation became quite an important part of my daily life. And very good doing this job to just actually learn to control your brain because a lot of the time the monkey brain is just jotting chatting biscuit to shut up for fifteen minutes Varvara Day but it was during a meditation session on the tour for Qin's Akin was all finished and I am. I just had a really really strong vision. That can was the first part of a trilogy. It was all about the soul owned by the spirit and I knew I wanted to make a real rock and roll record next and I knew I wanted to explore electric guitar because I hadn't really delved into that. It always been acoustic and that to me is the most visceral most physical Instrument Electric Guitar. I was like well. It just feels like the body and the absurd juxtaposition of being this kind of transcendent soul. Having an experience on this rock racing through space and then you have to experience that in a body that needs to poop. You just make terrible decisions on a few drinks. You know it's just like there's a Kurt vonnegut quote that was important for this records and from Kobe beard and he said my my soul knows my meat is doing stupid dumb things but my meat continues to do stupid dumb things something like that. It's not exact but it start crazy. Experience as a human being of consciousness and the ability to transcend and have piff unease in feel euphoria. But you're always going to drive the car and did you find happened. That kind of overarching goal like trilogy did that. Spe One with the rising in deadlines join me. I didn't really answer your question about actually having a schedule so what? I really embraced. This was that my creative brain works really well under pressure if there's no date if there's no goal if there's no cough. I just meander and procrastinate and actually probably I'm just lazy and I don't work if I have an actual cough day. I work extremely hard. WanNa get very excited so with Ken. For example the record label weren't putting any rules but I decided that I was going to start recording on January the eleventh and at Christmas time I was still five songs short. So we're talking like almost half the records short. I decided to write the album completely on my own. It was important for me. I'd never done it. Never did a low of CO writing but it was important where I was at that. It was incredibly personal so I went to New Mexico on a trip to towels New Mexico. Which is fantastic. And I also took a week up in Joshua tree arraignment time and I just a hours a day writing writing writing and I just did it and it was great. You can kind of tell. The thought flavor exists in those last two albums. Though you because there's a lot of sort of Meaty Guitar riff agenda. Yeah and the same with wax as well. It was written very quickly. We had a deadline. I'd met Nick McCarthy from Franz Ferdinand and then I'd gone to see a studio is literally garage he's really into dub and reggae just a massive Jamaican flag in a stuffed lion. Not Real one toy one in the corner of and guitars and that was it in Garrett and I was like this is it and I just call them one morons like nick. Do you WANNA make the record. Easily grow careless and so it was very quick.

KT Tunstall (Live)

"Hello Hello Welcome. That's quite funny that you picked that lineup by the funnies because it was I said it in barons in Glasgow when we were recording a live album on the tour and finally is a very endearing to call someone in Glasgow. If you're being an idiot appeared fanny and it just came out. It was unplanned. It's on my live album so yeah I think is gonNA glass that one great. Hashtag stike five eight member to write the word five. So you've been based out in La for some time now and that's obviously a very different culture. Has that impacted on your song race in Seoul what you say. Yeah I think location is always GONNA be important ingredient in what material you come up with and I'd actually go night to La to sort of start again. Because I'd been through some really difficult stuff here in the UK a dotted past divorce. Everything owned just really needed a fresh start. I wanted some sunshine and I wanted to be somewhere just in this of replenishing environment. London's quite overwhelming very fast place city. Oh it was found it quite difficult to relax in London and I gone to Venice. Beach was onto an. I'd been going to La for a long time tour but it was the first time few years ago I went to Venice beach and it was the first place. I'd been where everyone is just bombing around every day of the week. You don't have to wait for the weekend and that's actually really helpful for what we did. Because we don't have weekends in London if I had a Wednesday off. Everyone's just giving me evil looks because I've got time off whereas there it's just a very laid back quite an alternative culture in that part of La and La's basically like twitter. It just totally depends who you follow. You can have an extremely different experience living in different parts of La knowing different people. It's very separate all these areas so you can. You can really have a completely opposed experience of living there from someone else and so I chose Venice and I was going to take a break. I felt very stagnated. It just felt like I was caught in an eddy of finding the mixer. He's mixing everybody's staff of being in competition with you know inevitably any other female musicians that anyone could think of. And I just wasn't very inspired to make a record so I've actually gone out to L. A. Really to study film composition which I did but it was really just listening to west coast rock sixties and seventies row. Tom Petty fleetwood. Mac Neil Young Joni that got me writing some real kind of Air Punch big choruses again and the world had sort of become darker at that stage that was like two thousand fifteen things were on the turn and so if I was writing similar stuff folk inspired stuff like I did on invisible empire crescent me my fourth record. I probably would have to shelve it and waited but I was writing these really. Big Pop. Choruses about overcoming difficulty so it felt like quite helpful thing to put out into the world. I was excited to do it. Yeah we're always fascinated by right zoo. Kinda take a break from when we spoke to front healy. He said it's Kinda like select the field life. Follow for Awhile and I think that's really important. I think that's why I mean. Some people can smoke fags burgers every day until they're one hundred and five and they're fine. Everyone's different but it certainly works for me to not be constantly trying to keep up a level of output people often ask about writer's block and I actually watched them a star is born. The other day was it as far as born. No it was the wife. It was that foam the wife. Brilliant Glenn Close Foam. And there's a line in it where they're at this really pretentious party. No it wasn't even the wife. Can you ever forgive me? It was one of the Oscar nominated movies when Melissa. Mccarthy goes to this book party. And someone's asking this really pretentious right or do you ever get writer's block and he goes well. I don't subscribe to writer's block I was like. Oh my God. I say that it sound so pretentious but I actually don't. I just think it's quite arrogant to expect your creative mind to just do what you tell it to do. I don't understand really where the gift of some rain comes from. And so if people ask me that question I'm like look how many books how many films how many plays how many museums of you said that you want to go and see Redo Watch ingest and you've done use that time. Fill yourself with some stuff. Get some input or sit and do nothing in your Pyjamas. Also very useful. I find but you shall time for creativity. Oh that sounds like a bit of a paradox book. Do you put a new. Yes so it's a great excuse to go on. Adventures. I love right now albums. I love albums that one piece of vinyl because I think that four or five minute cut off point is actually a really good of point for how much music you can ingest at one time. The same for podcasts.

"I show moving on. We want to talk about Teddy Milk. We've never really talked about Teddy Mellencamp. She's a housewife. She's a lifestyle consultant. Who News John Mellencamp daughter and we have to have about? Yeah the former may be stepdaughter of Meg Ryan. Now no more more. She's just like she's like a housewives she's a beverly hills housewives person I just you know. There's really not much to say about her to be honest. But there is something to say about. Tamarin Hall and Kelly Clarkson Clarkson speaking of morning show. This is like Gos- that I this is reported areas. Yes the daily loss on the Daily Mail. The Daily Mail reported that because Kelly Clarkson show has already been renewed for a second season. According to these sources Taman Hall found out that Kelly Clarkson's renewed and hers has not not been renewed yet. It hasn't been canceled. It hasn't been announced yet. So Kelly Clarkson gets renewed for a second season because she sings townhall does not yet and so. According to the Daily Mail townhall quote blew a gasket. After finding this out apparently caused a little ruckus was so pissed off. That's all the story was well after that Chairman Hall takes to Instagram oops and wrote that. That's a bunch of lies. She says it's ironic that a few days after I sat on my show that I've seen men unquote storms out of rooms. Puffing and huffing and no one says anything while quote women who speak up reviewed as difficult that someone would leak false story about me being difficult leak AF- all all story is funny leak. A false story as I said live on my show live on my show while defending Gabrielle Union perceived as difficult pickled when they speak up I have never once complained about collusion. Newell I'm so happy for my fellow Texan. I'm excited about my show and I can't wait for season two so I guess she is getting a second that season is that what that says. I don't I don't know that it's official now. Point is tampering. Saying none of this ever had one hundred percent happened and this is her all the way that she wrote it a hundred percent habit. Because you wouldn't say paypal story is a weird way to put it but also you wouldn't say like Women men are treated for being matt. You know you wouldn't say that unless happened. Yeah she's a problem. Isn't that women who speak up or told their difficult but she's saying but late. This never happened. But you're right. You're right you're I didn't even notice that her explanation is that like just because women get mad doesn't mean that they're bad. It's like in a movie where you're like. How'd did you know his name? I never told you his name. Actually I never. I never told you my dress was lavender. That's exactly what this right. I didn't even notice that. Yeah I mean it. It just doesn't make any sense that she would say it. That way of it wasn't from truth. I think the weird thing is just like why wasn't Tamarind Hall's show more widely syndicated. The last I heard about Chairman Cameron Hall was that like she was annoyed. Rightfully that her show is not in a lot like all the major markets. She should not. And Not Kelly Clarkson America's sweetheart. Hi Kelly Clarkson because you're GONNA lose if you start fighting Kelly Clarkson her rating slipping producers complaint. She's too controlling. Okay shut up. That is route. That is rude of course controlling. It's her show. No this was just a funny bit. I think this is from the Sun Apprentices Ryan Mark which is funny his name is Ryan Dash Mark. Like I don't know last last night. I Oh it's Ryan Mark Parsons. But it says apprentices Ryan Mark Rushed to hospital dropping one thousand pound of caviar on his foot exclusive apprenticed Ryan Mark. Parsons needed an operation on his foot after the fishy blood splattered accident which is like gross and funny funny injury. That's like practically typically harmless. But the funny thing to me is somebody who's never heard of this person before it says Ryan Mark was devastated. Not because he thought he had broken his foot but because it was a kilo of royal off Centra Caviar which cost over one thousand pounds. And who is this person. I don't know he came in eighth on the apprentice. You I guess. He's like notoriously really rich nineteen but Shortest photo it was so funny. The headline in the Daily Mail the apprentices quote posh Star Ryan Mark. Parsons eats McDonalds meal with a knife and fork as he takes all all caps cutlery into the chain dot dot dot after he was taken to hospital over caviar inflicted injury. That's like his his bit. Caviar injury is very funny. We should all aspire to have caviar inflicted injury. And look at this so this is like he called the POPs look at that. I mean. This isn't even celebrity apprentice. It's just celebrity. I'd love this Victor Way. That's so cute. It looks like he dropped their after school. He's only nineteen years old. He looks like a baby. One of the quotes about his Caviar injury was a source told the mirror he literally couldn't walk and blood was everywhere life. That's what you say when you are the person who was injured when I had my foot injury when I was recounting to people I was like I literally couldn't walk and there was blood everywhere. Where is the apprentice? UK even pop. It can't be popular is popular over there. I don't know whatever in my remind you know. Like I feel like they're all humongous hits. But truly I don't know which ones are the real ones. They're not our Basel is also right now. And it's providing some who we staff that. I don't even think we have anything in here about that.

So this is your home. What thing that you really want to do when you touchdown chips. I don't mean like crisps, Kurt your chips are crisps thin, crunchy stuff. Not that chips. Here are a potato a real potato not just includes potato, but actual potato chopped into probably about maybe nine the most pieces and cooked in a way in Scotland. Where there I don't know how they do it. But they're SOGA in crunchy at the same time. Now as ING I had some chips last night with a deep fried. Yeah. My cheat meal. It was superb deep fried. That's That's the the other other thing. thing. It's funny. Nocco who plays in the band is. Is Japanese and it's really funny when I started going to Japan, I was like these are my people they will deep fry anything deep frying going on. I actually tried to get some food today. And I could not I couldn't find the vegetable sides. It's amazing. This goes people are alive. So in addition to doing chips, really, well and other people in Scotland's, okay? Seem to do really. Well is music. My honestly, I it's it's it blows me away. They history of pop music here is is mammoth anything maybe disproportionate to like the copy guy. So what's your take on it? What what do you think it is bad weather? Iceland's go as well. Like ridiculous musical. I put for a very small country an own Asli. I think is Ireland too. I think is horrible eyesight. And so you go inside, and then you have to do something and most people have a drink and that Leeson's them up and they become powerful invulnerable at the same time. That chip. That's that's crispy and saw time. Example of the best songwriters a Scottish. Crunchy. Since since we're here, I wanted to if you could tell us a little bit about what it was like for you playing music in your home country before before the rest of us in the rest of the world knew who you were. So I had a really amazing experience hometown. Actually, because I didn't really listen to music till I was fifteen and I was playing instruments unsure of doing of creative writing in a song maybe writing songs, but not really..

"Really strong. Pulp record. I wasn't expecting to make an after I'd finished it. I was I'm attempting to meditate in park in Nashville always trying to quiet the mind, and I just this really strong vision that should be the first thing in the trilogy that this record was all about spirit and soul, and I should make trilogy of soul, body and mind. So we are now in the buddy. Can we go back to your when you talked about your dad for just a second? Of course, I very pleased about him. So here's a physicist said, and I read this anecdote somewhere that when you were a kid that he took you into the goat. I mean, health and safety social services, I need a follow up on this story because I need you to whatever you can share. He's not gonna get. No. He's not going to get in trouble. Tell me. So so basically to any of you, guys know Thome layer music. Okay. Yes. So we basically didn't grow up with any music. But my dad was a massive tome layer fan. So I'd be like dancing in the living room to the table of elements and understanding he was saying, but I did know that word nitrogen. And so my dad would do these experiments where he'd start them off in the morning, come home for dinner at six o'clock. And then he'd always have to go back to the lab in the evening to check on the experiment before he went to bed, and he'd often take me and my brothers with them. And we were very small into the lab. And it's probably why I love this stuff because it's just all these amazing bleeping equipment with on an lights in this very exciting. But one of my dad's favorite games, we never really had a name for. I think we should just call. It. Don't die. That would be a good name for. It was the the nitrogen cannisters in the lab used to come on these big triangular kind of trolleys, and then you just take the canister off. The corridors were kind of these nineteen seventies like linoleum floor, but they would turn the lights down at night. So it was quite honest Farouq shiny floor lights were low and my dad used to take the nitrogen canister off the trolley put me in my brother on the trolley solut- a massive big glove of nights liquid nitrogen dine the corridor. And then basically get hold of the troll in go. Don't touch. Push this and me, and my brother would just be like gliding silently through this dry ice. And you'd see all the nitrogen bubbles Bank binding off the walls. And my dad would be like science. I'm my mom knew nothing about and she actually not that not that long ago. And she's completely more EFF is like couldn't she didn't know about don't die. God. So thanks for that story. It's you know, science can be rock and roll too. I think that's the moral of that story seriously. And even if you didn't grow up in a musical houses, quite a creative. How it was there? And then my younger brother, my older brother both adopted. And so it was a real testament to my folks that they weren't that musical. But they started playing classical piano at four they just anything. I wanted to do the kind of encouraged us to try to find out what we were. And then my mom ended up getting pregnant even though she told me that she couldn't. And then my younger brother was born completely deaf. So it was just this totally weird. Hey, goatee piglets families or but but we've we it's it's really been quite an eye opening. I've learned so much about having a brother with a disability. And then just that whole dynamic of kind of being picked up eighteen days old by a family. You don't you're going to get. It's quite a it's always been. So I I guess source of inspiration as well. So two things I guess I wanna talk about. How does your brother experience your music? Like, I'm thinking record. That's about the body. You do feel music, even if you don't hear my little brother done, he's lovely. He's tennis coach. Actually, he was the number one tennis player in Britain for a few years. The reason you have exactly and the reason you have a death tennis league is because you cannot hear how hard someone's hit the bowl. So you don't know what's coming to you..
