Earlier this year, Turner spoke to NME about the inspiration behind upcoming album ‘Be More Kind‘.
“I think that searching for simple answers is in and of itself a bad idea because the world is a complex place and I think that I’m inherently suspicious of people who have simple answers – that tends to mean they’re painting in extremely broad strokes which tends to paint over people, in my experience,” Turner told NME.
“Having said that, one of my preoccupations at the moment is the nature and state of political discourse in our societies. In particular on social media I think the structure of how we discuss politics on Twitter is extremely bad and I think that it is doing really terrible things to our society and to the cohesion of our society.
He added: “I think that people have forgotten that it’s a good thing to be able to understand your opponents in any argument. I’m not sure you can have a meaningful argument with somebody unless you understand where they’re coming from.”
