Prime Minister David Cameron has said that he "sneaked" into a First Aid Kit gig at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire.

The Prime Minister revealed that it wasn't the first time he had watched a gig unnoticed at the venue, explaining: "There's quite a good way of sneaking in there."

Speaking to the Mail On Sunday, Cameron said that he was a fan of Swedish sister act, commenting: "I've got into a bit of a countryish thing." First Aid Kit played the venue in November 2012.

At the end of last year, Cameron bizarrely named Mumford & Sons' album 'Babel' as his favourite Christmas song. The politician appeared to get his wires crossed in an interview with The Spectator, in which he said the band's 2012 second album is still on repeat in his house and is driving his wife Samantha Cameron "mad".

When asked what his favourite Christmas song is, the PM replied: "Although it’s been out all year I really love the Mumford & Sons album, 'Babel'. It's driving Samantha mad. You know what it’s like when you overplay something and it’s even beginning to annoy you, and it’s annoyed everyone else in the family."

In 2013, the PM revealed that he was trying to find a new favourite band after he was banned from listening to The Smiths by both Johnny Marr and Morrissey. "I'm a huge music fan but obviously it's been something of a music crisis year for me because Morrissey and Johnny Marr have said I'm not allowed to listen to The Smiths any more, so I've had to find some other stuff I am allowed to listen to," he said.
