Frank Turner’s current album ‘FTHC’ became his first #1 hit on the UK’s Official Album Chart.

Appealing to a broad mix of genres - punk, folk, rock and indie - its success was all the more remarkable given that it is his ninth studio album. Now Frankkeeps the album in the spotlight by sharing a new version of one of its key moments, ‘Little Life’, which now features KT Tunstall.The original version of ‘Little Life’ and the album’s subsequent ‘Farewell To The City’ combine to give ‘FTHC’ a feel of ending one chapter and waiting to see where the next journey leads to.

‘Little Life’ in particular is about those compromises we inevitably have to make as the years pass.

While the song expresses a melancholic doubt about embracing a life far away from the manic rush of the city, its focus is really on the possibilities that this new horizon brings. Maybe love and a leisurely pace of life is all that a couple really needs.

This new version is infused with a stronger romantic streak courtesy of KT Tunstall’s beautifully harmonised vocals. The duo revisited the song during a session at Eastcote Studios, London in March.Speaking on the collaborative experience, Frank said:

“This song is one of the more important ones on ‘FTHC’ for me, and I wanted to shine more of a light on it. I was blown away, not to say honoured, when KT agreed to be part of the track, and she's brought a whole new life to the piece.”
