Razorlight perform early morning instore show

The band celebrate the release of their new single

Razorlight performed four new tracks from their forthcoming second album for a one-off acoustic instore show in the early hours of this morning (July 3).

The band, who raced over from their earlier Hyde Park Calling support slot with The Who, played a 20 minute set to around 300 fans at London‘s Oxford Street Virgin Megastore to celebrate the release of their new single ‘In The Morning’.

The four-piece were due to play a fully blown live performance but were forced to perform an acoustic set instead at the last minute following complaints from Westminster Council.

Speaking about the performance singer Johnny Borrell told NME.COM: “It was great performing a set like that and to be honest I wished we’d carried on. I’m kind of annoyed we didn’t in the end because it was fantastic.”

Fans started queueing outside the store from as early as 7pm to catch a glimpse of their heroes.

And when Borrell, who was dressed in a pair of shades and a black and white spotted shirt, arrived onstage with the rest of the band, they received huge cheers before going on to perform five tracks, which included new songs ‘Fall To Pieces’ and ‘America’ as well as the ‘Help: A Day In The Life’ and forthcoming album track ‘Kirby’s House’.

Razorlight played:

‘In The Morning’

‘Fall To Pieces’

‘Kirby’s House’


‘Stumble And Fall’

Their self-titled second album is out on July 17.
