LISTEN: Saint Saviour - Tightrope

New single set for release at the beginning of an extensive October/November tour

The sublimely talented Saint Saviour is back. After glowing reviews of her debut album Union she has now announced a UK tour and a new single ‘Tightrope’ (of which, we here have previously proclaimed, "it's impossible not to slide clean off your chair into an emotional goo on the floor") out on November 5 - listen below:

Forget the Kate Bush comparisons or the fact she has sung with Groove Armada, Becky Jones is a uniquely talented artist, who has argubly produced one of the top debut albums of 2012.

She's also made a lovely Pinterest video. Love or loath Pinterest, this video was inspired by fans' interpretations of the song. She just asked her fans to post an image to the mood board that represents one of the lyrics of the track, and they came up with some rather splendid ideas - watch below:
