Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls have announced a new live album titled ‘Live In Newcastle’.
Recorded at the band’s O2 City Hall Newcastle show back in November 2019, the gig took place as part of a tour in support of Turner’s last solo album ‘No Man’s Land’ and saw the singer/songwriter playing two sets per night.
Set to be released on April 24 via Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records, ‘Live In Newcastle’ features unplugged versions of songs from Turner’s back catalogue as performed by Turner and The Sleeping Souls, as well as “introspective and deeply personal discussions of the material, shedding new light on old favourites”.
Speaking about the nature of his 2019 tour, Turner noted: “The story-telling set that I put together with the Sleeping Souls last year was a new venture, an experiment, a risk, and in the end a huge success – I couldn’t be more proud of the way we found a new angle on my songs and my live show.
“I’m excited that we managed to capture the magic and get it out there for everyone to enjoy.”
