Following a year that saw a headline sold-out Wembley Arena show and a performance at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony, Frank Turner will release Tape Deck Heart on April 23 through Xtra Mile Recordings/Interscope. Produced and mixed by Rich Costey (Muse, Weezer, Rage Against the Machine, Interpol) Tape Deck Heart is the follow-up to the UK-born folk/punk hero’s 2011 album England Keep My Bones which has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.
The first single “Recovery” is now available. One of several break-up songs on the album, “Recovery” sets tales of cider-fuelled nights in strange flats to joyous, jubilant, sing-along rock. “I like that contrast between upbeat music and dark lyrics,” says Turner. “It sounds like a happy song, but it’s clearly not. The album is about unexpected change and a big part of it is relationships ending.”
