Wise words from Frank Turner on separating politics and music

From Drowned In Sound:

Is it even possible to separate politics and music.

I think it’s entirely up to individual artists and how they want to handle it. For me personally, I was kind of thinking along those lines before all of this kicked off. One thing that music can do is bring people together and be a uniting force. It’s a beautiful thing when you have a room full of people from all different walks of life who put aside their differences and leave their baggage at the door. For a moment you create something that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
