Frank Turner’s ‘Be More Kind’ enters at #3 on the UK Album Charts, highest new entry this week

 

Frank Turner’s new album, ‘Be More Kind’ (out now via Xtra Mile/Polydor) has today entered at #3 on the UK Album Charts, this week’s highest new entry. The news follows the recent video release for single ‘Little Changes’ (watch below), and arrives on the first day of Frank’s sold-out Lost Evenings II festival, which runs across this weekend at The Roundhouse, London. Frank recently announced details of UK arena tour for early 2019, including Alexandra Palace on February 3.

Speaking about the making of the irrepressible new video for ‘Little Changes’, Turner says; “I have a long history of choosing uncomfortable and challenging ideas for videos (wrestling CM Punk, anyone?), but I have to say that getting a dance routine together was probably the hardest one to date. As I may have mentioned in song in the past, I’m not much of a dancer, but with the help of a choreographer (and two professionals), we put this video together, and I have to say I like it a lot.”

Be More Kind was inspired by a Clive James poem called Leçons Des Ténèbres: “I should have been more kind. It is my fate. To find this out, but find it out too late.” “It devastated me the first time I read it,” he says. “A lot of older, wiser people tend to say things like that, that the things that come out in the wash at the end of a human life are the way you treated the people around you. In the modern world, that’s a lesson that all of us, myself included could do to learn
