Kate Tempest gives Kyle Meredith a ring to dive into her Rick Rubin-produced album, The Book of Traps and Lessons. She discusses finding the right sounds to accompany her poetry, tying personal stories into a greater picture of a lost post-Brexit Europe, journeying into a better person, and what it’s like to perform a conceptual piece like this on the Glastonbury stage.

Kyle Meredith With… is an interview series in which WFPK’s Kyle Meredith speaks to a wide breadth of musicians. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, Meredith digs deep into the artist’s work to find out how the music is made and where their journey is going, from legendary artists like Robert Plant, Paul McCartney, U2 and Bryan Ferry, to the newer class of The National, St. Vincent, Arctic Monkeys, Haim, and Father John Misty.
