The new video for “Make America Great Again” shows  Frank on the streets of Austin, Texas whilst performing at this year’s SXSW Festival, conducting his own vox pop on what Americans feel truly makes their country great

Speaking about the new track, Frank says: “This is obviously one of the more provocatively-titled songs I’ve released in recent years, but in a way, I’m not kidding. America is bloody great, one of my favourite countries in the world. Much like back at home, they’ve had a politically fraught time of late, and I wanted to say something about it. And for the video, I thought I’d make some new friends (in Texas!) to help out with the suggestions.”

 

“Make America Great Again” follows the recently released single “Blackout.”

The forthcoming album—Be More Kind was inspired by a Clive James poem called Leçons Des Ténèbres: “I should have been more kind. It is my fate. To find this out, but find it out too late.” “It devastated me the first time I read it,” he says. “A lot of older, wiser people tend to say things like that, that the things that come out in the wash at the end of a human life are the way you treated the people around you. In the modern world, that’s a lesson that all of us, myself included could do to learn.”
