Frank Turner, who performs tonight at King Tuts in Glasgow, has a new album on the way. On August 16, Turner will release his eighth solo album, titled No Man's Land.
More than an album title, Turner recorded the record with producer Catherine Marks and a group of female musicians to help support its theme of overlooked women. "These stories should have been told already," Turner says in summary of the record. It will have an accompanying podcast series, "Tales From No Man's Land" giving further depth. "And I suspect if they were men they would be better known."
Turner address potential negative reaction to the concept as well: "It's not telling anyone what to do or how to live or how to be," he adds. "If there was a crowded field of people writing songs about Princess Kassiani then I would see the argument for me bowing out, but there isn't...No-one else is writing these songs right now. That's why I want to share these stories."
The album will release on Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records.
