Frank Turner 'The Way I Tend To Be' New Single Released June 17th 2013

Frank Turner will release his new single, 'The Way I Tend To Be', on June 17th through Xtra Mile Recordings. It's the second single to be taken from his acclaimed fifth studio album 'Tape Deck Heart', which was released last month and cements the Winchester-born folk-punker's status as a maverick hero who just happens to be one of the country's biggest singer-songwriters.
Turner, who headlined Wembley Arena last year and was also chosen as the act to open Danny Boyle's stunning Olympic Opening Ceremony, has recently completed a sold out UK tour. He is the highest-billed UK artist on the day he plays this summer's Reading and Leeds Festival, where he will play on the Main Stage on the Green Day bill.
'Tape Deck Heart' reached Number One on the iTunes chart, Number Two on the Official UK Chart and also entered the Top Ten on the US iTunes Chart in its week of release, underlining Frank Turner's arrival as a crossover DIY star. 'Tape Deck Heart' is his most expertly crafted yet, an album pockmarked with years of relentless touring and prolific writing, where Turner sounds at his most accomplished without sandpapering down his raw edge, spinning narrative tales through rousing, adrenaline-veined anthems.
Like the rest of the record, 'The Way I Tend To Be' was produced by Muse collaborator Rich Costey. A breezy, mandolin-flecked sing-along with Turner's stirring delivery at the center of it; it's a love song, Frank Turner-style, a grizzled ballad. The video was directed by James Copeman (Biffy Clyro, Noah And The Whale).
