Track Exploder – Kae Tempest


Kae Tempest is a songwriter, rapper, an award-winning poet, and best-selling novelist. They’ve been nominated for the UK’s Mercury Prize and Brit Award. Their most up-to-date album is The Line is a Curve, which got here out earlier this 12 months. It was government produced by legendary producer Rick Rubin. Kae made the album alongside their longtime collaborator, producer Dan Carey. I talked to Kae and Dan concerning the tune “Transfer.” You’ll hear the primary demo they made, which sounds mainly nothing like the ultimate model. On this episode, they speak about the way it developed. Kae’s personal life modified loads throughout that interval. They got here out as trans and non-binary in 2020, and this tune, partly, helps inform the story of what they had been going by.

You should purchase or stream “Transfer” right here.
