As summer approaches, acclaimed young singer-songwriter Frank Turneremerges with new material as Spin.com premieres his new single “Peggy Sang The Blues.” In anticipation of the June 7th Epitaph Records/Xtra Milerelease of his album England Keep My Bones, and after the leaked track “I Am Disappeared,” the song, Turner’s first proper new single and a rousing tribute to his spirited grandmother, has already become a live favourite.

Recorded in Crouch End’s stunning Church Studios, Frank, along with his band The Sleeping Souls and producer Tristan Ivemy, has, with England Keep My Bones’ created a deeply moving and powerful album with the quintessential English sound Frank has been searching for.

Unsurprisingly, for an artist who spends most of his time travelling the world guitar in hand, ‘England Keep My Bones’ has a nostalgic yearning feel to it – a musical homage to the homeland, friends and family Turner so often has to leave behind. Featuring contributions from ex-Hold Steady keyboardist Franz Nicolay, folk singers Emily Barker and Chris T-T, and Unbelievable Truth’s Andy Yorke, the songs cover themes of mortality, relationships and religion in what is a both a courageous and immensely beautiful album.

As Turner explains, “I can’t wait to get this record out there. The new songs have been going down really well live, but I think that when people hear the studio versions they’re going to go nuts. I think it’s the strongest set of material I’ve had on one record.”

Frank Turner will be showcasing tracks from England Keep My Bones when he embarks on a short tour of intimate North American venues.
