Meanwhile, Jake Bugg has said his past feud with Noel Gallagher is now “water under the bridge”.

The pair got into a spat in 2016 after he was dismissed by Gallagher who said he was “heart broken” to discover that the young artist had worked with other people to write his songs.

Speaking in this week’s Does Rock ‘N’ Roll Kill Braincells?! for NME, he said: “I knew that’s the kind of thing he does and it’s not just me that gets it.

“I was more slightly annoyed because we’d just come off the back of doing a big tour with him, but it doesn’t bother me. That’s his thing, isn’t it? We’ve exchanged a few messages since and it’s water under the bridge. And it’s just flattering to be mentioned by him!”
