One of the most cherished British artists working in music today, Frank Turner will release a retrospective set spanning his illustrious career in November. ‘Songbook’ will bring together highlights from across Frank’s six albums alongside ten brand new ‘Songbook’ versions of some of his most well-loved tracks.
These reimagined versions see some songs re-recorded in full and some stripped-down to an acoustic setting. ‘Songbook’ will be released on digital and CD on Friday 24th November, with a vinyl and deluxe boxset edition following on Friday 15th December.
The release will also include a brand new track. ‘There She Is’ is available to listen to HERE.
As well as the digital release, ‘Songbook’ will be released in three different physical formats. There will be a standard double-disc CD release, a triple-vinyl version and a triple-vinyl deluxe boxset. The deluxe boxset will also include a DVD of the ‘Get Better’ film, a previously-unseen concert film from Frank’s 2000th gig and at Nottingham’s Rock City in December 2016 and an exclusive photobook of pictures taken throughout Frank’s career.
