Last November, Tempest revealed a reworked version of the track “Move” from their critically acclaimed album The Line Is A Curve. “Move (Rework)” featured Additional vocals from Kojey Radical.

Kojey said of the collaboration, “Kae was a pivotal inspiration as I began my career, so finally getting the chance to work with them was a dream come true. As soon as I heard the record, I was excited. It’s pure energy with an interesting perspective, and I hope you enjoy.”

2023 looks set to be another big year for Kae Tempest, with the release of their new poetry collection Divisible by Itself and One, which will be published by Picador on April 27, plus a sold-out Australian tour, which kicks off in February and includes an appearance at Sydney Opera House.
