To celebrate the start of the UK leg of his ‘Be More Kind’ world tour, which kicks off in Birmingham tonight (Tuesday 22 January), Frank Turner has released a new EP, ‘Don’t Worry’, in support of his new single of the same title.
The EP features a new track, ‘Bar Staff’, the previously vinyl-only release ‘How It Began’ and a new stripped back arrangement of ‘Little Changes’, which Turner recorded live with Toronto-based community charity, Choir! Choir! Choir! Turner has also released a new live version of ‘Don’t Worry’:
Whilst 2018 was a characteristically busy year for Turner, playing to more than 200,000 people worldwide as part of the first legs of the ‘Be More Kind’ tour alongside the release of his seventh studio album, 2019 promises a raft of new projects, including the publication of his second book, ‘Try This At Home‘, and the first year on American soil for his AIM Award-winning Lost Evenings festival, to be held at Boston’s House of Blues from 16 – 19 May and is already sold out.
