Grammy® nominee KT TUNSTALL became one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters in the world in one giant step, with the amazing two-year global journey of her multi-million selling debut album, Eye To the Telescope. On September 18, 2007, Virgin Records will release Tunstall's second album, 'DRASTIC FANTASTIC'. For 'DRASTIC FANTASTIC' KT again tapped Telescope producer Steve Osbourne (U2, New Order, Happy Mondays). The album was mixed by Michael H. Brauer (Coldplay, The Rolling Stones, My Morning Jacket). Tunstall recently told a British interviewer that her acquisition of two "very sexy" guitars had inspired her to crank them for the new album, providing a clue to the sound of her new work.

The release of 'DRASTIC FANTASTIC' follows one of the truly extraordinary artist development stories of recent years. In a classic showbiz story, she subbed for an absent rapper on Jools Holland's television show in her native U.K., and her entirely self-accompanied performance of "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" - which she had chosen simply because it was her most recently-written tune -- created fierce anticipation around the album, which eventually became a quintuple platinum smash in the British market. Tunstall won the 2006 Brit award for Best British Female Solo Artist, and "Suddenly I See" won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, while "Black Horse" was honored as Q Magazine's best track of the year.
