Billy The Kid is the latest singer-songwriter to be taken under the wing of post-punk folkster Frank Turner. The Canadian singer-songwriter has been busy recording her new album Horseshoes & Hand Grenades with Turner, with the record due on the 26th September.

“I definitely took Frank’s lead as far as how to approach the recording process,” Billy The Kid explained. “Eventually it became apparent that we were a pretty good team but he came up with the concept of recording ‘live off the floor’ which I think contributed a lot to the finished product. I just think it sounds badass.”

As a taster of the new album Billy The Kid and Frank Turner have released a live video of the track “This Sure As Hell Ain’t My Life” which you can watch below:

“So here I am with an album of songs that I once loved and have learnt to re-love again,” Daniel Lee Kendall explained of the new album. “Though it’s a different love. It’s far more like I’m appreciating an old album of an artist in my youth. It’s almost as though someone else has written these songs, and I can appreciate and enjoy what this person has created and I wish to share them with people again. I hope whoever else discovers them enjoys them as much as me.”

Watch “How You Sleep At Night”, the New John Butler Trio Video

The latest video from John Butler Trio, “How You Sleep At Night”, comes with a poignant message. Shot in reverse and featuring schoolyard bullies, the video is meant as a metaphor for broader cultural issues.

“How You Sleep At Night” was written by John Butler after a confrontation with West Australian Premier Colin Barnett over the building of a large natural gas plant on a stretch of land in the Kimberley.

“At the end of the discussion I suggested we put all the ecological, economic and political differences aside and just asked him how he’d feel if it were his ancestors’ graves that were being dug up for a gas plant,” Butler explains. Not satisfied with Barnett’s answer he channel his frustration into the song.

Check out the video for “How You Sleep At Night” below:
