  • Kae Tempest Releases New Song “No Prizes” featuring Lianne La Havas

  • London based poet Kae Tempest released a new song “No Prizes” from their upcoming album “The Line Is A Curve”.
    This time, Kae Tempest teamed up with British singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas on the track.
    It was written by Kae Tempest, Dan Carey and Lianne La Havas. Produced by Dan Carey.
    The accompanying music video was directed by Thomas Alexander.
    “Made a song with my good friend and mind-blowing artist Lianne La Havas," Kae Tempest said in a press statement. "So grateful for her voice in the world and on this record. A portrait of three people getting on with getting on. I just got to keep climbing.”
    The new album is set to be released on April 8, 2022.
    The album comprises 12-track, featuring guest appearances from Grian Chatten, Lianne La Havas, Confucius MC and Kevin Abstract.
  • Kae Tempest said of the album, “The Line Is A Curve is about letting go. Of shame, anxiety, isolation, and falling instead into surrender. Embracing the cyclical nature of time, growth, love. This letting go can hopefully be felt across the record. In the musicality, the instrumentation, the lyricism, the delivery, the cover art. In the way it ends where it begins and begins where it ends. I knew I wanted my face on the sleeve. Throughout the duration of my creative life, I have been hungry for the spotlight and desperately uncomfortable in it.”
    They continued, “For the last couple of records, I wanted to disappear completely from the album covers, the videos, the front-facing aspects of this industry. A lot of that was about my shame, but I masked it behind a genuine desire for my work to speak for itself, without me up front, commodifying what felt so rare to me and sacred. I was, at times, annoyed that in order to put the work out, I had to put myself out.”
    “I want people to feel welcomed into this record, by me, the person who made it, and I have let go of some of my airier concerns,” they explained. “I feel more grounded in what I'm trying to do, who I am as an artist and as a person, and what I have to offer. I feel less shame in my body because I am not hiding from the world anymore. I wanted to show my face and I dreamed of it being Wolfgang Tillmans who took the portrait.”
