Frank Turner Releases Mittens EP + Tour Dates

Frank Turner released his Mittens EP yesterday, March 4. The EP features a new mix of the title track, "Mittens". The original version, is from his current album Positive Songs For Negative People. Check out the slow-motion, Ben Morse directed video for "Mittens" below.

Frank Turner will be in New York on Tuesday, March 15 at the NY Society For Ethical Culture. He'll take part in "An Evening of Conversation and Song" to celebrate his book, The Road Beneath My Feet. There will be an interview, Q&A with the audience and acoustic performance. See below for more details.

“’Mittens’ is a song about taking a risk for someone and letting your guard down,” Turner says. “It's based on a real experience I had where I was bothered about not getting a reply from someone, so I got obsessed with used postcards on a visit to a thrift store in New York. In the end she never did write back, but I like to think the risk was worth it, and I learned from the experience. With that in mind, I thought it would be cool to set up a website where people can send (virtual) postcards to each other, and use the opportunity to say something meaningful, to take a risk, and see what comes back. The video ties in with all of this — and my Elvis obsession — sometimes it's still worth it, even if you lose.”
