Razorlight preview new song at surprise gig
Razorlight performed a new, currently-untitled song at London's Union Chapel tonight (May 28) as part of a surprise four-song set.

The group teamed up to play at drummer Andy Burrows' charity event for Winchester children's hospice Naomi House.

Razorlight also performed three singles from 2006's 'Razorlight' after the new track, playing 'Before I Fall To Pieces', 'In The Morning' and 'America'.

During an earlier set featuring tracks from Burrows' solo charity album 'The Colour Of My Dreams', the drummer was joined by musicians including Muse's Dom Howard on drums and Guillemots' Fyfe Dangerfield on keyboards.

Editors' Tom Smith later joined the drummer, also performing on guitar and vocals, on the track 'The Colour Of My Dreams'.

Burrows was also joined by The Bluetones' Mark Morriss for three songs, including a run-through of the Britpop band's 1996 hit 'Slight Return' to the delight of the crowd.

Poet Peter Dixon, who wrote the pieces Burrows put to music on his album, also performed two short poems at the event.

The stage in the chapel was decked out with oversize children's alphabet blocks and a cut-out of Donald Duck, while a tin foil moon hung spotlighted above it.

Andy Burrows and friends performed:

'Spanish Boats'
'Who Wants Me Now'
'Big Chief Grandad'
'Missionary Sales'
'Lighthouse Men'
'Teacher Goodbye'
'Setting Sun'
'I Was A Teenage Jesus'
'The Colour Of My Dreams'

Razorlight then played:

[Untitled new song]
'Before I Fall To Pieces'
'In The Morning'
