The Homeless Gospel Choir releases new track with Frank Turner

Dream-collab, some would say – either way Don’t Know is definitely a song you should listen to! 

The band has just released their new music video, hand drawn by Dave Watt for Don’t Know, which features guest vocals from English folk-punk Frank Turner.

Derek Zanetti also known as The Homeless Gospel Choir, is a protest singer, author and artist based out of Pittsburgh, PA. Through his on-stage humor and vulnerability, Derek creates an atmosphere of inclusion and community. He engages with the audience in a way that allows them to know that they’re not alone.

The Homeless Gospel Choir has also announced they will be joining Frank Turner and Canadian rockers Arkells on the Be More Kind World Tour this Spring in the UK, plus they are touring in support of their 2017 release The Homeless Gospel Choir Presents: Normal, out now on A-F Records.

The Homeless Gospel Choir Presents: Normal is a concept record, loosely based on Zanetti telling life stories via short acts throughout the album. The album was described by Frank Turner as “a generationally defining album for the underground punk scene.” He also said, “In half an hour, Derek reminded me of what punks supposed to be.” The Homeless Gospel Choir Presents: Normal features guest vocals from both Frank Turner and Frank Iero.
