The Late David Turpin Releases ‘Offerings (2008-2020)’ For One Day Only

On May 1, for one day, The Late David Turpin will release ‘Offerings (2008-2020)’, a compilation of his best work from 12 years as a recording artist.

David says: “Never having had anything remotely approaching a ‘hit’, I don’t really know what to call a compilation like this, but I’ve tried to make music that’s sexy, sad and sympathetic to animals, and these songs are the times I got it mostly right.”

As well as demonstrating David’s particular fascinations – with the natural and supernatural worlds, and with unusual expressions of desire – ‘Offerings (2008-2020)’ showcases his many collaborations. Cathy Davey, Jaime Nanci, Samyel, Conor O’Brien, Bear Worship and Strands (Stephen Shannon) have all been visitors to the ‘Turpiverse’, and some of their contributions are featured on these recordings.

The songs are taken from David’s four albums: ‘The Sweet Used-to-be’ (2008), ‘Haunted!’ (2009), ‘We Belong Dead’ (2013) and ‘ROMANCES’ (2019), the latter two recorded after a near death experience that saw him adopt the recording name ‘The Late David Turpin’.

‘Offerings (2008-2020’) will be available for one day only, via Bandcamp, on May 1, 2020, from midnight to midnight.
