Frank Turner has announced that he is to publish a book of tour diaries.

The singer-songwriter revealed the news on Twitter, having signed a deal with Headline Publishing.

Turner wrote: "Happy to announce that I've sorted a deal with Headline Publishing to write a book of tour diaries. Looking at releasing it in Spring 2015".




Turner recently said that he will be releasing a new solo album in February 2015.

The singer revealed his plans for the follow-up to 2013's 'Tape Deck Heart', saying it won't be as dark as its predecessor. "I'm writing quite upbeat songs at the moment, by my standards anyway – they're still about the long dark night of the soul," he told Gigwise.

Speaking about the release date for what will be his sixth solo album, he commented: "February, I'll put money on it. There'll be an 18-month world tour starting in January. We're going to destroy the world in bitesize chunks."
