Frank Turner Begins Recording New Album

Having completed a US tour, Frank Turner has begun recording his new album in Burbank, California. Turner is working with Rich Costey who has previously worked with MuseThe Joy Formidable, Interpol and Franz Ferdinand.

A new blog from Frank Turner can be read by clicking read more.

"Coning in at under 4 weeks, the American tour we finished on Sunday night in New York was a short one, a whistlestop bounce between the coasts. Nevertheless, we had a ton of fun, played my biggest US shows to date, and made firm friends with the amazing Jenny Owen Youngsand Larry & His Flask. Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows, and to the crew (Eric, Casey, Greg and Grizz). Next time we hit this country the tour will be longer.

I write this blog from Burbank, California, the same place we were before the start of the tour, when we were working on pre-production for the new album. We’re now back here for the whole of this month to make the record. We are working with the amazing Rich Costey (that’s the reason we aren’t recording in England, incidentally; I’ve wanted to work with Rich for a long time). It’s exciting and daunting in equal measure. I’m pretty confident in the songs I have this time around, and I really feel like this is an opportunity to work on being a recording artist, using the studio as a proper tool. Or something like that. Time will, of course, tell, but I’m putting my bets down now on this being a good one.

So! To the studio. I’ll try and post some photos and videos of the working process as we go along. Wish us luck!”
