Kooks frontman Luke Pritchard has said that the band’s new album ‘Listen’ is so different to their old material that they could have renamed the band. The band will release the LP on September 1. Produced by frontman Luke Pritchard and hip-hop producer Inflo, it features the recent singles ‘Down’ and ‘Around Town’.

Glastonbury Festival begins in earnest today (June 27) with performances due from Lily Allen, Haim, Rudimental, Skrillex and headliners Arcade Fire.
