The new Frank Turner single features Jason Isbell and Muse’s Dom Howard.
Frank Turner has unveiled his first new music in nearly two years.
The Gathering was recorded in the company of producer Rich Costey, a partnership rekindled after 2013’s Tape Deck Heart.
“It’s about that moment when you come together in a room full of people, and you lean on a stranger and sing along with the chorus and get the words wrong,” Turner says of the track.
“The biggest thing for me about the lockdown experience was about identity. I am the guy who tours, this is who I’ve been since I was sixteen. This is the longest period of time I’ve slept in the same bed continuously since I was seven.”
So-called ‘Gathering’ UK shows have been arranged in conjunction with the single, while there’s a full band gig booked in Manchester on August 21st.
