This is the opening track from Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall's third studio album, Tiger Suit
. Uummannaq is a town in Greenland. In September 2008 Tunstall joined the Disko Bay Cape Farewell expedition to the West Coast of Greenland, where she lived on a boat with a group of artists, writers, and musicians. Cape Farewell is a UK based arts organization that brings artists, scientists and communicators together to instigate a cultural response to climate change. "After years of touring and being babied, it was humbling to go somewhere where life is hard," she told MusicRemedy.com
. "I experienced one of my worst gigs ever in the town of Uummannaq. My confidence was so low, I felt like a jingle writer. I didn't want to be on stage and I've never felt like that. I just wished for a simpler life and not to be in this weird creative rat race. I wanted to get off the boat and live there." This song was inspired by her Greenland foray.
