FRANK TURNER today releases ‘Jinny Bingham’s Ghost’ - Listen Now

Alongside the latest episode in his successful ‘Tales From No Man’s Land’ podcast series, FRANK TURNER today releases ‘Jinny Bingham’s Ghost’, the latest new track to emerge from his forthcoming eighth album, ‘NO MAN’S LAND’ (out August 16th on Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records), produced by Catherine Marks and featuring an all-female cast of musicians.

Frank will play new material from the release across a 9 date UK headline tour, including two sold-out dates at London’s Alexandra Palace Theatre on November 30 and December 3, 2019. The tour will see Turner put a new twist on his formidable live setup, featuring a solo set followed by an unplugged band performance in seated venues. Stream ‘Jinny Bingham’s Ghost’ below:

Today’s pacey, densely detailed new track centres around Jinny Bingham, a rowdy Camden coachhouse owner from the 17th century. Bingham – accused by locals of being a witch – was the original impetus for Frank’s ‘No Man’s Land’ project, after he came across a plaque to her memory outside Camden’s World’s End pub, which stands on the site of her former coachhouse, where Bingham’s ghost is reported to still haunt.

‘No Man’s Land’ is dedicated to the vital stories of women from history whose lives have all too often been overlooked by dint of their gender. Hailing from across wide geographical and historical lines, they also include Byzantine princess Kassiani (The Hymn of Kassiani), Egyptian feminist activist Huda Sha’arawi (The Lioness), and Resusci Anne (Rescue Annie) an apocryphal drowned virgin whose face was used as the model for the medical CPR mannequin across the world. There’s the serial killer from the Deep South who plucked her victims from lonely hearts pages (Nannie Doss), the jazz-obsessed heiress who fought for the Free French (Nica Rothschild) and an 1800s Dodge City vaudeville star and philanthropist (Dora Hand).

“It’s bringing together my two main interests in life, which have always been separate from each other – history and songwriting,” explains Turner, who can be found seeking out long-forgotten historical sites on self-guided psychogeographical strolls when he’s not packing out arenas or headlining festivals.

The ‘Tales From No Man’s Land’ podcast is available from Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Acast and all other podcast platforms.
