Frank Turner

Frank Turner will be broadcasting his new documentary 'Get Better: A Film About Frank Turner' next week alongside a live performance from London's Leicester Square. The film is named after his single 'Get Better', which he first released as a music video last year.

Frank TurnerFrank Turner unveils 'Get Better' documentary

The film follows Frank Turner's extensive touring schedule, from his passionate stage performances to his day-to-day life in between shows. He's gotten the chance to take a break from a busy few months and reflect on his career and his relationships with friends, family and his passion for getting inked. He talks about the addiction to touring; to the energy from the dedicated crowds and to the adrenaline of releasing your art on to the world. And he explains what he thinks about the media's perception of him.

Frank Turner - Mittens EP Review


Frank Turner is a busy man, following the release of his sixth album Positive Songs For Negative People last August he put out a vinyl box set compilation (The First Ten Years) and next month has a full length vinyl re-issue planned for Record Store Day. Nestled in-between is the digital only EP Mittens, which will satisfy his fan base's voracious appetite for new material. It's also another example that no matter how prolific the 34 year-old is, he's still got a few gems up his sleeve for releases like this.

Frank Turner - Mittens EP Review

Of the five songs presented here, the key track is the bittersweet piano ballad 'Little Aphrodite'. It's a distant cousin to 'Mittens' itself as it chronicles the same relationship at a much earlier point in time. It's nostalgic, honest, and has moments of real romance. The same can't quite be said of 'Mittens' itself, where the full band treatment drowns the bittersweet tendency of the lyrics out. The single mix presented on this EP is definitely an improvement from the version found on the album as the call and response backing vocals that dominated the latter part of the song are way down in the mix here. It still packs a sonic punch, which I don't entirely understand because the point of the song seems to be a post-mortem of a relationship rather than being a defiant anthem.

Turner does put his skill at writing a rousing crowd-pleaser to good use here though, 'Least Of All Young Caroline' is a beautiful slice of kitchen sink drama, with a positive and re-assuring message that stays with you, no matter how bad it gets, it will get better. Turner's lyrics are made all the more moving as they're aimed at an adolescent, coupled with a Punk-Rock chorus, it sits alongside the best of Turner's work.

Daft Punk Get Lucky

A Week in Videos... Undoubtedly the most eagerly-anticipated video of the week comes from Daft Punk, who return to the scene with ‘Get Lucky.’ Featuring Pharrell on vocals and the legend that is Nile Rogers on guitar, the track has already broken daily play records on Spotify and quickly became one of the most talked-about tracks online. A classic in the making, Roger’s distinctive guitar sound lends the track an authentic disco edge.

Heavy on the expletives, low on production costs, this Frank Turner video for ‘Plain Sailing Weather’ sees the angry troubadour continuing the confessional vibes of his last single ‘Recovery.’ Playing with his band in a church, the track begins with Frank playing alone, with his guitar, before the band kick in with him for the chorus.

Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls took to Glasgow's O2 Academy for his second UK date out of six on his major world tour.

The folk guitarist grabbed the nation's attention when he performed at the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics last summer and now he's spreading the music worldwide, landing in the UK this week and playing an amazing set in Glasgow on Thursday (April 18th 2013). It was the singer's second date in the UK on this tour where he was supported by the American bluegrass band Larry and His Flask and London folk artist George Frakes. Turner certainly didn't hold back at the prestigious venue, and seemed blissfully both unaware and uncaring of the whacky performance faces he was pulling. That's what we like - someone who's most comfortable when playing guitar in a 2,500 capacity venue.

Frank Turner, The Second Three Years Album Review


It's refreshing to find an artist that celebrates their musical heritage, no matter how unfashionable it may seem at first glance. In Frank Turner's case an appreciation of his very British roots and traditional folk music has allowed him to stand head and shoulders above many of his contemporaries. New compilation The Second Three Years is the perfect demonstration of that sensibility, while tipping his hat to his influences and heroes along the way.
