British musician Frank Turner has been making music since he was twenty. He started in few post-hardcore bands. His musical direction changed, when he discovered Bruce Springsteen’s music, that as he says turned his music career upside down. Since 2007, he’s released six studio albums.

Turner is now working on his seventh studo albums called Be More Kind. “I wanted to try and get out of my comfort zone and do something different,” he says. The album has been produced by Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block, formerly of psychedelic-rock Texans White Denim, and Florence And The Machine and Halsey collaborator Charlie Hugall. It’s a record that combines universal anthems with raw emotion and the political and the personal, with the intricate folk and punk roar trademarks of Turner’s sound imbued with new, bold experimental shades. The lyrics were inspired by Clive James’ poetry, but also current political climate and Turner’s personal live. Whereas the last album Positive Songs For Negative People was cut in nine, intense days, Be More Kind was made over a period of seven months, giving Turner the opportunity to turn songs on their head, try different versions and shake up the dynamics within his band. Be More Kind release date is on May 4th, but first single is out now. It’s called 1933 and it’s a clattering, state-of- the-nation anthem with a punky vibe and angry lyrics.
