South London poet, playwright, novelist, and musician Kate Tempest (is there anything this woman can’t do?!) has shared the first preview proper of her new album ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’.
Over a steady, ominous pulse, Kate Tempest speaks about boredom and stagnation, and people desperately marching on just trying to keep it together and survive. Nothing in the world she’s talking about is whole. “Hard rain falling on all the half-hearted, half-formed fast walking half fury half boredom, hard talking, half dead from exhaustion,” she spits in quick-fire, as politically charged as ever.
The follow-up to Kate Tempest’s Mercury-nominated breakthrough ‘Everybody Down’ will be released through Fiction Records on 7th October.
Listen to ‘Don’t Fall In’ below.
