Today, British spoken word artist, rapper, poet, novelist and playwright Kate Tempest drops a new version of her song “People’s Faces” off of her critically acclaimed album The Book Of Traps & Lessons—listen to “People’s Faces” (Streatham Version) HERE!
Of the song, Kate Tempest says “‘People’s Faces’ is the final song on my recent album The Book Of Traps And Lessons. It’s where all of the agonising and soul-searching of the entire record culminates in this very simple expression of deep love for people’s faces. We wanted the song to have the possibility of connecting with as many people as possible. So, we made a version that was shorter and was more song-like, we are calling it the ‘Streatham Version’ as that is where Dan [Carey] is based. I really hope that it connects with you and that you feel it.”
Tempest is gearing up to tour her new album across the U.S. later this month—kicking off on September 24thatLos Angeles’ Teragram Ballroom, she will be making stops in New York, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle andBellingham. Tickets are on sale now at https://www.katetempest.co.uk/.
