This powerful slice of folk-rock is taken from James J Turner’s new album ‘Future Meets the Past”’ it stands pretty tall as an anthemic take on the life of a wandering, working man – exchanging the sweat of the brow for mistrust and finding that hard work only buys being ostracised. On the album, though, it’ll fit in with a larger concept of a Bardic Druid who tries to reconnect people both to the natural world and the cultural and historical roots of the past. ‘Hey Brother’ is out as a single on the 14th of September, and James J Turner will take the album out on tour later in the year thanks to the support of Arts Council England.
