Frank Turner Tape Deck Heart on LP
Following a year that saw a headline sold-out Wembley Arena show and a performance at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony, English singer-songwriter Frank Turner 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 the Winchester-born folk/punk hero’s 2011 album England Keep My Bones. Turner notes, "I'm an enormous Weezer fan. There's a fair amount of Weezer influence on this record."
The first single from Tape Deck Heart will be the sublime "Recovery." One of several break-up songs on the album, "Recovery" sets tales of cider-fueled nights in strange flats to joyous, jubilant, singalong 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."
