Song of the Day: KT Tunstall, "Hold On"

Song of the Day: KT Tunstall, "Hold On"

Feeling a little sluggish this morning, I was glad to come across this KT Tunstall single posted on Stereogum because it quickly got me up and running. What's more, I can finally replace "Suddenly I See," Tunstall's majorly overplayed single which, while I enjoyed it the first time around, now causes me to actually sprint out of stores when I hear it piping through the speakers.

"Hold On," will be released on Tunstall's next album Drastic Fantastic, available September 18. If this track is any indication, I'm definitely intrigued to hear the rest of the album. There's a great beat that makes you just want to move, and Tunstall's vocals are much sultrier than they are on "Suddenly I See."

The whole feeling of this song is sort of fun-dangerous, making it perfect for placement in TV shows and movies. Tunstall's already clearly on Hollywood's radar, having had "Suddenly I See" placed in The Devil Wears Prada, "Grey's Anatomy," "Ugly Betty," and "The Hills," among others, so I fully expect to hear "Hold On" on TV before too long. I'm guessing it'll find its way into "Gossip Girl." Any other predictions?

To listen to "Hold On,"

Despite the HORRIBLE title of her new CD (not to mention her very questionable fashion choice in the photo above), I actually like the song. I am always curious to hear what kind of sophomore effort these artists with one or two hits on their debut albums will turn out, and based on this single, I am impressed.

KT is a true rocker despite pop-infused Prada hit. Black Horse is still infectious and that is a very stripped down jam. Love her!

I like "Suddenly I See", too, but I've never gone out to buy that album or taken the time to really look at the words to the song. What's it about?

This song and her voice somehow reminds me of Amy Winehouse's Rehab song. Though I like KT more than Amy.
