Frank Turner: Be More Kind – new video

Frank has just released the title track from new album Be More Kind, which is due out May 4 via Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records.  Watch the video here:

Speaking about the new track, Turner says; “Be More Kind, the song, is at the heart of the album, both lyrically and musically; when I finished it I could see the rest of the album coming together around it.’’

Produced by ex-White Denim members Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block, alongside Charlie Hugall (Florence And The Machine, Halsey), the  album was heavily influenced by the poetry of Clive James. Struck particularly by a line which read “I should have been more kind. It is my fate. To find this out, but find it out too late” – Be More Kind captures Turner reconciling the personal with the political.

Says Frank; “A lot of older, wiser people tend to say things like that, that the things that come out in the wash at the end of a human life are the way you treated the people around you. In the modern world, that’s a lesson that all of us, myself included could do to learn.”
