Frank Turner releases new track ‘Mittens’ from upcoming album ‘Positive Songs For Negative People’

Frank Turner has today unveiled a new track, ‘Mittens’, the latest to be taken from his forthcoming new studio album, “Positive Songs For Negative People”, out August 7th through Xtra Mile Recordings and Polydor Records.  Available as an instant download for fans who order the album on iTunes, the fist-clenched defiance of ‘Mittens’ finds Turner dissecting an ill-matched relationship with his trademark lyrical nous- watch the lyric video above!

In addition to Mittens, Frank has teamed up with Shazam to bring music and images together for the very first time with Shazam’s new visual recognition technology.  Fans who find and Shazam Frank Turner lyric posters across the UK will be able to access an exclusive stream of two new songs ‘Love Forty Down’ and ‘The Angel Islington’.

“Positive Songs For Negative People” is Turner’s sixth album and the follow-up to 2013’s critically-acclaimed “Tape Deck Heart”. It was made with the singer-songwriter’s trusted backing band The Sleeping Souls and produced by Butch Walker in Nashville. “I feel like this record is my definitive statement, a summation of the first five records,” says Turner. The album’s lead single ‘The Next Storm’ impacts August 3rd, with an attendant video which features Turner in the boxing ring for a bout with WWE Champion CM Punk.

Frank Turner has also announced details of a UK headline tour in November which will take in 11 cities including Alexandra Palace in London.
