The Frames Songbook

Cool news for the folks attending this July’s Frames gigs!

Through the frames 25 years, they’ve always been very lucky to work alongside some fantastic photographers and artists. It seemed like a good time to put together a songbook of 30 of our favourite songs, alongside images – many previously unseen – from their whole career. The tabulation pages were designed by Dunk Murphy to specifically reflect glens personal guitar fingering and a companion page accompanying each song has been selected by our very close artistic cohort David Cleary who himself has been around the band since way, way back in the day…..again, we hope you like it as much as we do…..

We’ve only done a small run of these books and they will be available at the shows in July. If we have any left then we will sell them through the frames web store. [Click through for a list of included songs]

The Frames fan tribute video

Frames fans Emmet O’Brien from Thinking Cog Productions & Ross Carey at Kino Shout! have produced this lovely video tribute for The Frames. Have a look!



The Frames will release “Longitude” at the end of June – a compilation of songs chosen by the band, including new versions of Revelate & Fitzcaraldo and a new song called None But I, which you can listen to down below.

“This is a collection of songs from throughout the twenty five years we’ve been a band. We initially wanted to mark this anniversary with a sort of ‘Best of The Frames’. We put together a few different versions, including a certain number of songs from each record and including more popular live and radio songs – but this felt forced and incongruous. After many conversations amongst ourselves we decided it should simply be a collection of our favourite tunes, songs we would be happy to put on a mix-tape for a friend. So, here it is, with no regard to what album is most or least represented. It’s a short collection of tunes we are proud of, some in slightly different versions from the original recordings, and one new song. This is not the sum of our career but maybe some of the songs where we felt we had broken through to a new place or gotten better as a band. We hope you like it….we hope you enjoy it.” – GH [Read More]
