We’re back with Dinked Archive Edition 5 – a 20th anniversary reissue of Turin Brakes’ massively acclaimed debut! The Optimist is reissued on July 9th by Two Piers Records.
Turin Brakes’ 2001 debut, The Optimist, was released in 2001 to huge critical acclaim with its introspective, soul-searching folk rock. At the time favourably compared to a deeper, more emotionally complex version of Coldplay’s Parachutes, The Optimist has stood the test of time, with many still considering it to be Turin Brakes’ best work. Now, for its 20th anniversary, the album is being reissued for the first time, with a bonus LP of demos and studio outtakes, and new artwork.
