Crescent Moon

Album: Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon (2013)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • It was only after Jools Holland asked Tunstall to join his big band because of her voice that the Scot began, for the first time, to consider herself not just as a musician but specifically as a singer. This graceful, gently orchestrated tune is evidence of Tunstall's new confidence in her on-mic skills, which she demonstrated on Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon. "This album is about singing," she stated, "and it's about my voice. That was what I wanted to be the centrepiece of the album, which I'd not done before."
