Frank Turner Reveals Video For “Blackout”

Frank Turner has released his third single — “Blackout” — from his forthcoming album Be More Kind. Of the song, Turner said, “[‘Blackout’] is new territory for me, musically — a song you could even play in a club. It’s about how we might collectively respond to social dislocation and collapse.”

The accompanying music video was shot on the George Lucas stage at Elstree Studios, the same studio where scenes from legendary films like Star Wars and Raiders Of The Last Ark were shot.

Be More Kind is due out May 4th. The album finds Turner taking a more rock-forward route and tinkering with bits of electronic-pop along the way. “I wanted to try and get out of my comfort zone and do something different,” Turner said of the new direction.
