England Keep My Bones is the fourth studio album by London-based singer-songwriter Frank Turner, released on 6 June 2011, on Xtra Mile in the United Kingdom, and on 7 June 2011, on Epitaph Records worldwide. Preceded by the single, "Peggy Sang the Blues", the album was produced and mixed by Tristan Ivemy, who had previously mixed Love, Ire and Song, Rock & Roll and Campfire Punkrock.

The album's title is taken from William Shakespeare's play, The Life and Death of King John,[13][14] with Turner noting, "I knew that the album was, for the most part, about mortality, and about Englishness. Shakespeare seemed like a good place to go hunting for some pearls of wisdom, and with a little help from my friend Ben we came across this one, and it just seemed to fit the work really well."[15]

Background and recording

Amidst extensive touring in support of Poetry of the Deed, Turner and his then-untitled backing band recorded Rock & Roll, an EP consisting of tracks written at the same time as Poetry of the Deed alongside new material. Following its release, Turner and the band spent twenty days[15] in January 2011, recording their next studio album with producer Tristan Ivemy. Turner noted, "I guess we worked pretty fast by most measures, but it wasn’t ever rushed, it was a really comfortable recording experience actually. We did an awful lot of pre-production and demoing, so I felt very ready to make the album once the time finally rolled around."[15]

Writing and composition

Prior to the album's release, Turner noted that his growing commercial success had influenced his lyrical content, stating, "I could still write songs pretending to be the underdog kid, but it's just not really true anymore."[16] Turner also noted that one of the major themes of the album is that of "English national identity,"[16] stating, "it's something that I want to write songs about. I, quite self-consciously, want to make music that sounds English."[16]

Regarding the album's overall aesthetic, Turner notes, "it's not a radical departure, just maybe a little deeper ploughed into the same furrow,"[17] and stated, prior to its release, "I'm very pleased with it, I think I achieved what I set out to do, which was to make a record that falls equally between Love Ire & Song and Poetry of the Deed. The songs sound very strong to me."[18]

Turner commented on the atheist nature of closing track, "Glory Hallelujah", stating, "I have played many Christian songs on stage in my time, and have no issue with that; but one time I was singing “May the Circle Be Unbroken” onstage in Atlanta, with Chuck Ragan, and it occurred to me that it'd be nice if there was a concomitant atheist song, with the same feel, to put the other side of the argument."[17]

The Sleeping Souls

Following the completion of the album, Turner subsequently announced his backing band had named themselves The Sleeping Souls, after a lyric in the track, "I Am Disappeared". Regarding their contributions, Turner noted, "they arrange with me, and there’s a clear distinction. Basically I turn up with songs that are finished to the extent that they have verses, choruses, middle eights, chord progressions and vocals. I generally have some ideas about what I want people to do. People will suggest a guitar or piano line, but I retain power of veto. It’s a dictatorship, rather than a democracy. To be honest, without getting too precious about this, I pay them to be in my band. I don’t want to be in a band, if I did then I'd do that. This is my project."[19] Turner had previously stated, "I made [the album] with my band, but it feels like more of a solo record than Poetry of the Deed,"[20] and further elaborated, "Last time round, I think I was a little excited about having a stable band line-up to take into the studio; also, we worked out all the arrangements in about two weeks of intensive rehearsal. As a result the feel tended towards the rock end of the spectrum and it became a band record – which is fine, but it’s definitely in the side field of what I want to do. This time we were all on tour together pretty much the whole time when I was writing, which meant we had much longer to work on arrangements, plus I was more confident in not using people on some songs, as opposed to just throwing everything on all the time."[21]

Reception

England Keeps My Bones was met with "generally favorable" reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, this release received an average score of 77 based on 14 reviews.[2]

NME described the release as "a fearless venture for an artist with something interesting to say."[22] Paste placed it at number 50 on their "Top 50 Albums of 2011" list.[23]

Francis Edward "Frank" Turner (* 28. Dezember 1981 in Muharraq, Bahrain) ist ein britischer Musiker.

Werdegang

Aufgewachsen in Winchester, England, besuchte Turner das Eton College und stieß 2001 als Sänger zur Punkband Million Dead, mit der er zwei Studioalben und mehrere Singles/EPs veröffentlichte. Parallel studierte er an der London School of Economics, an der er einen Bachelor-Abschluss in Europäischer Geschichte machte.

Seit dem Ende der Band im Jahr 2005 ist Turner solo als Singer-Songwriter tätig, dessen Musik deutliche Einflüsse aus Folk-Rock und Punk besitzt. Sein erstes Album Sleep Is for the Week erschien im Januar 2007 im Vereinigten Königreich und wurde in der dortigen Musikpresse überwiegend positiv wahrgenommen. Dessen Nachfolger Love Ire & Song wurde im März 2008 veröffentlicht und erschien im Sommer 2009 als Re-release auch im deutschen Sprachraum. Ersten größeren kommerziellen Erfolg erzielte er mit dem im Dezember 2008 veröffentlichten Album The First Three Years, einer Zusammenstellung der Songs von Singles und EPs aus Turners ersten Solojahren, das Platz 72 in den britischen Albumcharts erreichte. Auch sein drittes Studioalbum Poetry of the Deed, das im September 2009 veröffentlicht wurde, erreichte die britische Hitparade und konnte dort bis auf Platz 36 vorstoßen. Ende 2010 erschien eine EP mit dem Titel Rock & Roll; im Juni 2011 das Album England Keep My Bones, das Rang 12 der britischen Charts erreichte. Später im Jahr wurde eine zweite Sammlung von Singles und B-Seiten namens The Second Three Years veröffentlicht. Am 27. Juli 2012 trat Turner mit seiner Band bei der Eröffnungsfeier der Olympischen Sommerspiele 2012 im Olympiastadion London vor circa 80.000 Zuschauern und einem weltweiten TV-Publikum auf. Im April 2013 erschien sein fünftes Studio-Album Tape Deck Heart, welches von Rich Costey produziert und erstmal außerhalb des Vereinigten Königreichs (nämlich in Kalifornien) eingespielt wurde. Das Album stellt bis dato seinen größten kommerziellen Erfolg dar und erreichte neben Platz 2 in Großbritannien auch die Charts in weiteren europäischen Ländern sowie den Vereinigten Staaten.

In der Regel spielt Turner seine Konzerte mit seiner Band The Sleeping Souls, die bereits seit einigen Jahren unverändert aus Ben Lloyd (Gitarre), Matt Nasir (Keyboard), Tarrant Anderson (Bass) und Nigel Powell (Schlagzeug) besteht. Vereinzelt tritt er auch solo auf.

Ein Nebenprojekt von Frank Turner nennt sich "Möngöl Hörde" – eine Hardcore-Punk-Band bestehend aus Matt Nasir (Gitarre) und Ben Dawson (Schlagzeug). Seit dem Erscheinen des gleichnamigen Studioalbums 2014 tritt die Formation hin und wieder live auf. Auf Wunsch Turners wird das Projekt und das Album nicht werbewirksam vermarktet.[1]

Die 13 Songs seines Albums No Man’s Land (2019) widmete Turner außergewöhnlichen Frauenpersönlichkeiten wie Rosetta Tharpe, Hudā Schaʿrāwī, Mata Hari und Christa McAuliffe.[2] Das Album wurde von der Australierin produziert.[3]
