Turner recently said that he hopes to release a new solo album in February 2015. He 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.”
