Supergrass reformed after a 10-year hiatus in 2019, but are yet to release any new music. Their sixth and most recent studio album, ‘Diamond Hoo Ha’, came out back in 2008.
Earlier this summer, Gaz Coombes and co. played a set on The Other Stage at Glastonbury 2022. The frontman joked at one point in the show that they were “two years late”, adding: “Traffic was a bitch.”
He said: “It’s such an honour to be here today. We first played this stage 27 years ago. We don’t look any older.”
