Big Dada are pleased to announce the signing of Kate Tempest to the label with her album Everybody Down. Read more about the record and download "Lonely Daze", plus the chance to be at the debut performance of the album here.
Kate is best known as a poet, perhaps a performance poet or a spoken word artist. She also has a novel coming out next year with Bloomsbury. But ask Kate what she is and she’s more likely to say she’s a rapper. That’s her true and first love. More of Skinnyman than Seamus Heaney, more of Deal Real’s legendary Friday night rap battles than a book signing and reading at Foyles.
Everybody Down has twelve ‘chapters’ telling one long, inspired story, a unique, one-off project and comes produced in its entirety by Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, M.I.A + Hot Chip). The result is a revelation.
Everybody Down will be released on 19 May 2014.
