Frank Turner is very pleased to announce details of his forthcoming seventh studio album.
Be More Kind will be released on May 4th through Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records. Months after the release of Songbook, a career-spanning retrospective which also saw reworked versions of tracks from across the past decade, Be More Kind represents a thematic and sonic line in the sand for the 36-year-old. It’s a record that combines universal anthems with raw emotion and the political and the personal, with the intricate folk and punk roar trademarks of Turner’s sound imbued with new, bold experimental shades.
Frank has also released the first track from the album, ‘1933’, a clattering, state-of-the-nation anthem which you can listen to below.
In celebration of the album, Frank Turner will be heading out on ‘The Be More Kind Tour’ in April/May which includes a stop at Manchester Academy on 13th April. A full list of live dates can be found below.
