    the album is up on iTunes in the U.K. with the album title as 'Be More Kind' but the artwork just says 'Blackout'

    I recall watching a live performance months on months ago and he said he thought the album was going to be called Be More Kind.

    As I said in the other thread, I believe he’s gonna use the racism and misogyny from the political climate as a point of reference to be a better person to the people around you.

    It won’t be just an hour of hating Trump but more of a reflection on how we as people can be better despite Trump and company.

    Album artwork I'd assume... Looks like every song has artwork to go with it though.

    Hyped. Frank hasn't put a foot wrong.

    He has been talking about this being his "half electronic" album, and that makes me nervous but I'll of course give it a go.

    Interesting interview. I'm hyped the record, and I'll listen to the song after work. I can't imagine it being a let down.

    Really cool article, and I'm always on board to try anything he puts out. He's one of the artists I trust in that respect. I'm excited for this!

    I remember having a big chat with him about The Postal Service a few years back and he does seem to know about such a wide range of genres. I have full faith.

    Like the album cover, I'm absolutely desperate for him to try something / anything that's a bit different, so an electronic-y album is potentially interesting.
