KT Tunstall Channels Warrior Energy In Her New “Human Being” Video

KT Tunstall has unveiled her empowering new video for “Human Being,” a track off the Scottish singer’s new album Wax.

 

“I’ve gone through my dad dying, I’ve gone through a divorce, I’ve gone through selling everything I owned and moving continents and relocating to Venice Beach, California, which I highly recommend if anybody has a crazy midlife crisis.”

My vision for the video was to create a mirror between a young, crazy-talented, bold little girl, and link that burgeoning energy to a band of warrior women who have achieved their goal of turning their young talents into something very real and powerful as working musicians and performers,” Tunstall said of the video in a statement.

I’m a huge fan of John Hughes movies, and I’m an ’80s kid, so all of that imagery from that time is kind of my childhood. It’s my coming of age. Also the song, “Human Being,” was certainly inspired very much by [Giorgio] Moroder, who produced Blondie. That was something that we were looking to as inspiration. The analog synthesizer sound in that song is very much of that time, and we used the old, real instruments. It was just a time that I remember, there were these really kick-ass rock women. The first woman I remember seeing on the TV was Kim Wilde, and she was doing “Kids in America.” That was the first time I’d really seen a rock ‘n’ roll chick on TV, because I grew up with Whitney Houston and Madonna and, you know, Wham! and Prince and Michael Jackson, and they’re the most incredible artists, but they weren’t artists that I looked at and went, “Ooh, I want to do that.” It was definitely a time where there was very strong female energy.

I knew before I started writing that I wanted it to be an electric guitar record,” Tunstall previously said of Wax. “It had to be visceral, about the physical, and the obstacles of that. It’s a record about human-ness, which we so often just write off as ‘flaws’. Wax evokes colonies of bees, candlelight, the material that the first long-playing records were made of, but more than that, wax is produced inside your own head.”
