— The Guardian on The Book of Traps and Lessons
“This record is a living poem that captures the angry tension of being alive in 2019: trying not to look directly at the oncoming crises, trying to love and give and dance in the midst of fire smoke”
Kate Tempest’s innovative, award-winning writing across music, plays, novels and poetry is well-known for giving voice to everyday life in a world harangued by capitalism, environmental crises, inequality, misogyny and celebrity culture. Her latest album, The Book of Traps and Lessons, continues the artist’s analysis and critique of the way we live now, but offers glimpses of peace and beauty amid it all. Join Kate for an hour of words to move, stir and surprise.
