May the 4th be with you, indeed. English folk-rock singer-songwriter Frank Turner has returned with his seventh studio album, Be More Kind. It’s an album that stands as a statement on the times we currently live in, with Turner flexing his storytelling ability over the course of 13 songs.
With titles like “21st Century Survival Blues” and the Trump-inspired “Make America Great Again,” where Turner sings “Let’s make America great again/by making racists ashamed again,” it’s clear Turner has returned to the political waters he temporarily abandoned in favour of personal storytelling with 2015’s Positive Songs For Negative People. Welcome back.
