Turner, whose new album Tape Deck Heart is due later this month, has amassed a large international audience with his steady flow of inspiring, politically-charged songs and very prominent live performances—the most notable of which may be his selection to play as warm-up artist for the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony in front of 200,000 people.
The singer, signed to Xtra Mile Recordings in the UK but until recently handled by Epitaph in the States, will now see Tape Deck Heart distributed in the US by Interscope Records. Though that extended reach is unlikely to affect the quality of the songs Turner continues to write, it’s very possible his music will now be accessible to more people than ever. And as you’ll surely note by watching the performances below, that’s very good indeed.
