Courteeners unplugged St. Jude Re:Wired is due for release on 06 April 2018 and was produced by Liam Fray and Joe Cross. Originally released in April 2008, the album charted at No. 4 in its first week and went on to beat the likes of Duffy, Adele and Glasvegas to win the inaugural Guardian First British Album award. Furthermore, lead track ‘Not Nineteen Forever’ has amassed over 20 million streams on Spotify alone.

Band frontman Liam Fray commented, “We were looking for a way to mark the 10 year anniversary of the release of St. Jude… we thought it might be worth at least raising a little glass to celebrate the fact that we’re still here. I’d been out on an acoustic tour this autumn, re-working and revisiting tunes from the back catalogue, stripping them back, bigging them up and experimenting with some different interpretations. The string section were incredible and unknowingly nudged me into unlocking something special. I loved revisiting all the old songs and putting a new twist on them. So, the day after the final date of the tour, I gingerly prised myself out of bed, booked a studio, rang the band, brought in some string-players and we ‘re-did’ St. Jude in a few days. And it sounds f*****g brilliant.”

Also scheduled to play a headline Teenage Cancer Trust gig at the Royal Albert Hall in London next year are Leicester rockers Kasabian, who will take the stage on 24 March 2018.
