New Frank Turner live album lands on Friday

Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls have announced the release of a new digital album ‘Live In Newcastle’ – Due out on April 24 via Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor, the album was recorded during Turner & The Sleeping Souls’ set in late 2019 at O2 City Hall Newcastle, during a headline tour in support of his UK Top 3 album release, ‘No Man’s Land’.

Speaking about the album – which snapshots a shake-up of his live show, featuring un-plugged sets performed (uncharacteristically for Frank) in seated venues, Turner says; “The story-telling set that I put together with the Sleeping Souls last year was a new venture, an experiment, a risk, and in the end a huge success – I couldn’t be more proud of the way we found a new angle on my songs and my live show. I’m excited that we managed to capture the magic and get it out there for everyone to enjoy.”

The announcement arrives alongside Frank’s current #IndependentVenueLove series of virtual fundraiser gigs to support independent venues during the current coronavirus crisis. So far the series has helped raised over £1K for London’s Nambucca and has helped to save Southampton’s Joiners Arms from closure.

Presumably to showcase the alternative format of the gigs, as I can’t see a “No Man’s Land” song in the track list. 🙂
