The anti-folk singer heads to the country to record

Frank Turner teams up with The Holloways on new album
Former Million Dead frontman Frank Turner is et to team up with The Holloways on his new album.

The rocker has spoken about the sessions for his forthcoming album, 'Love, Ire And Song'.

The singer-songwriter is also employing some famous friends for some vocal back-up.

He said: "I've written a barber shop harmony for The Holloways to do, it’s going to be such good fun. It’s going to take forever to piece it together, it’ll be great."

While only half-recorded, Turner told NME.COM that the sessions are going well.

"It's been the most awesome recording session ever," he said. "Basically, I found this barn conversion down in Hampshire, near to where I grew up, and we built the studio in there. It’s in the middle of nowhere, our neighbours were horses! It was such a cool place to record."

Turner also explained how the record differs from his last, this year’s 'Sleep Is For The Week'.

He admitted: "It's sounding much more English folk than American folk which I’m pleased about. Then there are other songs that are a little more straight up powerpop, like The Lemonheads. It’s a more serious record too – I think I’ve written enough songs about getting wasted!"

‘Love, Ire And Song’ is set to be released sometime in the first half of 2008.
