KATHRYN WILLIAMS – The Mind Has Its Own Place + Oct Tour Dates


Kathryn Williams releases a new single on 20th November. ‘The Mind Has Its Own Place’ taken from her hugely acclaimed ‘Hypoxia’ album – a collection of songs inspired by Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar.

Says Kathryn of the song “This song was written for Dr. Nolan: She was the kind female doctor who seemed to care and show compassion to Esther. Previously to her Esther had had an arrogant self-serving male doctor who had performed electric shock treatment incorrectly. A trust forms between the characters and it is the gentle presence of Dr. Nolan that makes you believe a cure is possible.”

Kathryn has announced tour dates for October & November as below, including a number of co-headlines with The Magic Numbers Michelle Stodart* (who also performs in Kathryn’s band). Kathryn performs the album in full at Manchester Literary Festival, followed by a discussion about the project with The Observer’s Rachel Cooke. At the end of the run, Kathryn appears at the Barbican joining a band that includes Ed Harcourt, Adrian Utley (Portishead), Jim Sclavunos (The Bad Seeds), Romeo Stodart (The Magic Numbers) and Tom Herbert (Polar Bear) in tribute to Lee Hazlewood.
