Marking a decade since the release of his breakthrough album, Frank Turner has announced a special commemorative edition of England Keep My Bones. The album that transformed him from festival favourite to folk/punk superstar, the record will be expanded to a deluxe version on 4th June 2021.
Alongside the original album, the tenth anniversary edition will also include a bonus disc of unheard demo recordings from the El Paso Sessions of the period. Customised with bespoke new artwork, the double-disc set will be available on 180g vinyl and in a multitude of different colour variants – exclusive to indie retailers across the world. Exclusive to download-only, 15 additional Solo B-Sides recorded at Old Blacksmiths Studios are also being made available for the first time.
Frank Turner’s fourth album England Keep My Bones, is the record that saw Frank step-up from cult status to mainstream success. Produced by Tristan Ivemy and recorded at The Church Studios in 2011, the album found Frank dwelling on themes of mortality and Englishness; and formulating some of his most profound and accomplished material in the process.
Reflecting on the legacy of England Keep My Bones in 2021, Frank Turner says: It’s been ten years since the album (or one of them) that changed everything in my life: “England Keep My Bones”. When we were making it, back in 2011 in Crouch End, I knew it would be special, but had no idea how far it would take me around the world. I’m extremely proud of and grateful for it. A decade on, we’re celebrating with an anniversary edition, double vinyl with beautiful new artwork. Vinyl comes in a variety of colours and features the full album plus exclusive demos. I hope you all enjoy.”
