Frank Turner unveils video for new single ‘Recovery’ – watch

The track is first official single from his new album 'Tape Deck Heart'

Frank Turner has unveiled the video for ‘Recovery’, the first single to be taken from his forthcoming new album, ‘Tape Deck Heart’.

Scroll down to watch the part-animated video. The track features on Turner’s fifth studio effort as a solo artist, which was produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Weezer, Rage Against The Machine) and will be released on April 22. Speaking to NME about his choice of producer, Turner said, “I’m an enormous Weezer fan. There’s a fair amount of Weezer influence on this record.”

Turner also tells NME the album is “a break-up record”. He says:

It’s a record about what you do when something that was supposed to be perfect comes to its natural end. But it’s not all heartache.


The album is the follow up to 2011’s ‘England Keep My Bones’. Turner will tour the UK in April to promote the release.
