Since then, he’s worked on talking when he feels rubbish, something which his new album addresses. Franks keen to challenge the idea that he’s got his shit together, hoping that sharing his own struggles could help other people:
“A lot of people think I’m really together, but I don’t feel very together at all. Mental health is important and it affects an awful lot of people. More often than I would like, that’s led to losing people before their time, so we have to talk and do something about it. As ridiculous as it is, I have a platform and I want to direct to something more worthwhile than my ego.”
You can listen to FTHC now, or if you’ve missed live music as much as we have, catch Frank playing on The Never Ending Tour of Everywhere 2022 (who knows, you may even see him rocking some CALM merch).
