Music show: BirdPen, KT Tunstall & Ghostface Killah

British alt-rock duo BirdPen is back with a new album "There’s Something Wrong with Everything", awash in songs that touch on information overload, the spread of fake news and fearmongering. Despite the gloomy title and subject matter, Dave Pen and Mike Bird tell France 24’s Richelle Harrison Plesse that the record is about escaping the cycle of negativity and finding the positive. The pair also perform a beautiful stripped-back version of the track "Good News".

In other music releases, Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall drops "Wax", the second disc in a trilogy devoted to exploring mind, body and spirit, and legendary rapper Ghostface Killah channels old-school hip-hop vibes on "The Lost Tapes".
