The singer makes a guest appearance on Barker's new single 'Fields Of June'
Frank Turner has filmed a guest appearance in the video by Emily Barker And The Red Clay Halo and comes to a rather unfortunate end.
The former Million Dead frontman, who also sings on the song’s accompanying track ‘Fields Of June’, plays Barker’s lover in the video, and, after getting his heart broken, sadly ends up getting buried in the ground. You’ll be able to watch the video on Tuesday (July 17) on NME.COM and you can hear the song at the bottom of the page now.
Earlier this week, Turner spoke about his new side-project, promising that it will be more “depraved” than his solo career.
In a video which you can watch below, Turner says his new band will take in more extreme material and will also feature a track he’s written about Natalie Portman.
He said: “It’s me, it’s Ben [Dawson] who played me in Million Dead and Matt [Nadir] who plays in the Sleeping Souls, my backing band. Musically it’s taking cues from bands like Jesus Lizard, Hot Snakes, Mclusky.”
He continues: “Lyrically it’s very different from what I do now, it’s kind of depraved. The first song we wrote is about Natalie Portman’s tapeworm using her as a glove puppet to lead an uprising in Hollywood. We’re writing a whole pile of new songs and we’re going to do some live dates soon.”
Frank Turner will play next month’s V Festival as well as the Strummer Of Love and Beautiful Days festivals.
