Having built himself up to be one of the shining prospects within Britain’s singer/songwriter talent today following the demise of his band, Million Dead, Hampshire’s Frank Turner will be retrospectively celebrating the success of his solo career with a new compilation record.
The album, titled ‘Songbook’, will bring together highlights from across Turner‘s six studio full-lengths alongside ten brand new versions of some of his most well-loved tracks; some re-recorded in full, and some stripped-down to an acoustic setting.
‘Songbook’ is set for release on November 24th 2017 digitally and on CD, with a vinyl and deluxe boxset edition dropping on December 15th 2017.
