Tune 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 yr. 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 in regards to the tune “Transfer.” You’ll hear the primary demo they made, which sounds principally nothing like the ultimate model. On this episode, they discuss the way it advanced. Kae’s personal life modified lots throughout that interval. They got here out as trans and non-binary in 2020, and this tune, partially, helps inform the story of what they have been going by means of.

You should buy or stream “Transfer” right here.
