Kate Tempest shares her single Hammer

Kate Tempest shares her single "Hammer" which comes out on May 20 on Big Dada records, the LP was produced by Dan Carey, (Bats for Lashes, M.I.A. Hot Chip)


Kate Tempest 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 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 (Bats for Lashes, M.I.A . and Hot Chip.) The result is a revelation.
