Singer posts 'Four Simple Words' online and gives an alternative Christmas message

Frank Turner has given away his new track ‘Four Simple Words’ as a free download – you can listen to it by scrolling up and clicking.

The singer posted the new track, alongside B-side ‘Cowboy Calls’, on YouTube and a download link on his record label Xtra Mile Recordings’ website on Christmas Day (December 25).

‘Four Simple Words’ is the first track to be taken from the singer’s forthcoming, currently untitled, new album. His fifth solo studio album will be released in Spring 2013.

Turner also gave an alternative Christmas message, which you can watch at the bottom of the page by scrolling down and clicking, where, dressed in a Slayer Christmas jumper, he explained that he was releasing the new track as a free download because he “felt Christmassy”.

Earlier this year, Frank Turner released his very own signature beer. The singer-songwriter helped to create an ale called Believe, after his 2010 single ‘I Still Believe’.

Speaking about the beer, Turner said: “Being asked to design a beer was a new one for me – I don’t know masses about beer, other than that I like drinking it a whole lot. In the end I learned a lot, had a fun evening getting hammered, and ended up with a beer with my name on the label, which is pretty much the pinnacle of any road-dog’s ambitions. I’m very much looking forward to sinking a few with friends after a show.”
