Frank Turner Announces UK Tour And Details Of New Album 'Tape Deck Heart'

Following a year that saw a headline show at a sold out Wembley Arena and a performance at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony, Winchester-born folk/punk hero Frank Turner starts 2013 by announcing the title, tracklisting and release date for his forthcoming album, plus details of a short run of UK headline shows.

ImageOn 22nd April 2013 Frank will release ‘Tape Deck Heart’, his highly anticipated fifth studio album through Xtra Mile Recordings. Produced and mixed by Rich Costey (Muse, Weezer, Rage Against the Machine, Interpol) ‘Tape Deck Heart’ is the follow-up to 2011’s ‘England Keep My Bones’ which has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.

Frank explains further: “So, friends, the time is finally upon us! My new record is called ‘Tape Deck Heart’. There will be two versions - the normal record, and then a special edition with special packaging and an extra six songs. I'm pleased as punch with it. Some of you will know some of the songs from us playing them live, but there's a whole bunch of new stuff on there as well. I hope you like it!”

Tracklisting for ‘Tape Deck Heart’ is as follows:

Standard edition:
Losing Days
The Way I Tend To Be
Plain Sailing Weather
Good & Gone
Tell Tale Signs
Four Simple Words
Polaroid Picture
The Fisher King Blues
Oh Brother
Broken Piano

Plus these extra tracks for the deluxe edition:
We Shall Not Overcome
Wherefore Art Thou Gene Simmons
Undeveloped Film
Time Machine

The first fruits from the album was the raucous party belter ‘Four Simple Words’ which was given away as a free download on Christmas Day. An instant live favourite, it’s had crowds all over the country dance like crazy, as seen on the live video filmed from Frank’s recent UK tour.

To celebrate the release of ‘Tape Deck Heart’, Frank and his band The Sleeping Souls will do a short run of headline shows in the UK.
