PREMIERE: Frank Turner’s gorgeous acoustic version of “The Next Storm” is filled with joy and pain

Frank Turner

We here at Substream HQ love Frank Turner a lot—so much so that we even put him on the cover of our new issue, available now. And we’re absolutely over the moon at the prospect of adding Frank’s sixth album, Positive Songs For Negative People, to our record collections this Friday, August 7. (You can pre-order your copy here if you still haven’t.) So when we were asked if we’d like to debut a gorgeous acoustic version of the album’s first single, “The Next Storm,” we couldn’t jump out of our chairs fast enough. This performance was filmed on May 22 during an in-store session (well, technically outside-of-store session) at Salzer’s Records in Ventura, California, and truly captures the joy and pain of “The Next Storm.” Sit back and enjoy:
