A good day for Frank Turner fans: the British songwriter has released a new music video for Positive Songs For Negative People highlight “Mittens” and announced a new EP, also titled Mittens.

The new EP features the single version of the title track, as well as four new songs which seem to be B-sides. You can pre-order the EP right here.

“’Mittens’ is a song about taking a risk for someone and letting your guard down,” Turner says. “It’s based on a real experience I had where I was bothered about not getting a reply from someone, so I got obsessed with used postcards on a visit to a thrift store in New York. In the end she never did write back, but I like to think the risk was worth it, and I learned from the experience. With that in mind, I thought it would be cool to set up a website where people can send (virtual) postcards to each other, and use the opportunity to say something meaningful, to take a risk, and see what comes back. The video ties in with all of this — and my Elvis obsession — sometimes it’s still worth it, even if you lose.”
