Celebrated singer-songwriter Frank Turner has just released a video for the first single from his anticipated new album England Keep My Bones which will arrive in stores this June 7th via Epitaph/Xtra Mile.
The clip is for the song “Peggy Sang The Blues,” already a fan favorite in concert, and features the charismatic Turner on a sound stage with his band performing the rousing tribute to the card playing whisky drinking non conformist grandmother who inspired him.
The track features the dually inspiring and cautionary chorus of “It doesn’t matter where you come from, it matters where you go. No one gets remembered, for the things they didn’t do.” Turner recently explained to Spin“One of the things I don’t like about English culture is our obsession with people’s backgrounds. I believe life is what you make of it as an individual.” He also reflected on the subject of the song, Peggy, “She was totally awesome. She got me drinking whisky and playing poker at age 10. She passed away a long time back but I think of her often.”
