Frank Turner revisits his catalog with 'Songbook'

Frank Turner’s Songbook – a retrospective set spanning his illustrious career – is available now on Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor/Interscope Records. Songbook brings together highlights from across Frank’s six albums alongside 10 new versions of other tracks. These re-imagined versions see some songs re-recorded in full and some stripped-down to an acoustic setting.

A vinyl and deluxe box set edition is out Dec. 15. The release also includes new track “There She Is.”

In addition to the digital release, Songbook can be purchased in a variety of physical formats: a standard double-disc CD release, a triple-vinyl version and a triple-vinyl deluxe boxset. The deluxe boxset will also include a DVD of the film “Get Better”—a previously-unseen concert film from Frank’s 2000th gig at Nottingham’s Rock City in December 2016 — and an exclusive photobook of pictures taken throughout Frank’s career.

Watch “Long Live The Queen” live from Nottingham Rock City HERE.
