Frank Turner Positive Songs For Negative People on 180g LP
British singer-songwriter Frank Turner will release his new album, Positive Songs For Negative People, in August 2015 via Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor UK /Interscope. The record is the London-based Turner's sixth full-length effort and serves as the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2013 release Tape Deck Heart. Turner recorded the 12-track set with his trusted backing band The Sleeping Souls and it was produced by Butch Walker in Nashville.
"I feel like this record is my definitive statement, a summation of the first five records," Turner says. "When a band makes a debut record, there's a freshness and excitement to it that bands often lose as time goes by. I wanted to make a record with that young, exciting feel." After a period of writing and perfecting the songs at a rehearsal studio in England, they headed to the US to work with Walker for an intense nine-day recording session. "Pretty much all of it is live," Turner adds. "The end result is everything I wanted it to be."
