Frank Turner paid a moving tribute to the late Scott Hutchison on his new single “A Wave Across A Bay”.
The 40-year-old musician was a close friend of the Frightened Rabbit frontman – who tragically committed suicide in May 2018 – and he wrote a song in his memory for his upcoming album “FTHC”.
After revealing the runway on Wednesday night (12.01.22), he tweeted: “I still miss my friend Scott every day. His passing has left a huge hole in so many lives.
“I wrote this song in his honor and in his memory, it was difficult to write and record, but I think it does the man a little justice.”
The song intentionally recalls Scott’s work with Frightened Rabbit in terms of production, while Death Cab For Cutie drummer Jason McGerr – another friend of Scott’s – performs on the recording.
Frank added: “Fun fact: @dcfc’s Jason McGerr (a friend of Scott’s) played drums on this one and did a great job.
“The entire production of the song is hopefully obviously part of the tribute to Scott and the larger and incredible work of @FRabbits. I have done my best to find their measure. (Sic ) “
Meanwhile, hitmaker “The Way I Tend To Be” also confirmed a special charity outing with funds donated to Tiny Changes, which was created in Scott’s memory.
He said: “There is also a 7 charity” whose proceeds go to @tinychanges – an incredible charity created in memory of Scott, helping to create positive change for the mental health of children and families. youth. “
In the emotionally charged track, Frank sings to his late friend and describes him as “a wave through a bay, never breaking”.
He sings, “There must have been a time, just before you touched the water, when you were filled with a sense of peace and understanding.
“With the wind in your hair and the light in your eyes, as you realized you were finally escaping.
“But somehow at that point, you miraculously miss it, like a wave through a bay that never breaks.
“And that’s how I like to think of you, always falling, never landing. Rolling slowly towards the sea and still smiling, you were still smiling.”
