Frank Turner will release his new single, ‘Losing Days’, on 1st September through Xtra Mile Recordings. It's the third single to be taken from his acclaimed fifth studio album ‘Tape Deck Heart’.
The Winchester-born folk-punker has had a busy year, even by his own standards. Following the release of ‘Tape Deck Heart’ in April, he played a sold out tour of the UK and has been on the road with his band The Sleeping Souls ever since. So far his global tour has taken him across Europe, to the Far East, Australasia and North America.
Turner, who headlined Wembley Arena last year and was also chosen as the act to open Danny Boyle's stunning Olympic Opening Ceremony, recently played T in the Park and is due to play on the Main stage at Reading/Leeds festival where he is the highest-billed UK artist on that day.
‘Tape Deck Heart’ reached number one on the iTunes chart, number two on the Official Chart and also entered the Top Ten on the US iTunes Chart in its week of release, underlining Frank Turner’s arrival as a crossover DIY star. ‘Tape Deck Heart’ is his most expertly crafted yet, an album pockmarked with years of relentless touring and prolific writing, where Turner sounds at his most accomplished without sandpapering down his raw edge, spinning narrative tales through rousing, adrenaline-veined anthems.
Like the rest of the record, ‘Losing Days’ was produced by Muse collaborator Rich Costey.
