The song comes from their 2008 debut 'St Jude'
The Courteeners‘s 2008 track ‘Not Nineteen Forever’ has been named Manchester United FC’s official celebration song for their 20th Premier League victory.
The team topped the league last night (April 22) following a 3-0 win against Aston Villa at Old Trafford and the song – which is taken from the band’s debut album ‘St Jude’ – is now back in the iTunes Top 100, as fans purchased the track to celebrate their team’s victory.
The band’s new single, ‘Van Der Graaff’, is released on May 6. The track comes from their third album, ‘Anna’.
The Courteeners play two homecoming shows on July 5 and 6, at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl, with support from Miles Kane, Reverend & the Makers, James Skelly & The Intenders, The Strypes, The Heartbreaks and Findlay.
Of the shows frontman Liam Fray has said: “To spend two nights with our fans under the stars of Manchester will be very special indeed. It’ll be great to finally be bringing ‘Anna’ home. With some amazing supports, people are in for a treat… July can’t come quick enough. Let’s pray it doesn’t rain.”
