The four-piece have been recording a host of covers while in lockdown. Recently they’ve shared a version of Tame Impala’s ‘The Less I Know The Better’ with help from Miles Kane as well as previous renditions of The Beatles’ ‘Paperback Writer’ and Frank Ocean’s ‘Lost’.

The band are set to release a new track from the gig each week, following the show’s setlist, which will make up the new album, ‘Live From The Plaza Theatre, Stockport’, which will be released in full on July 3.
Blossoms released their third album ‘Foolish Loving Spaces’ at the end of January, which NME called “yet another pop masterclass (with added disco and Talking Heads)” in a four-star review.
“We might be uncool, but so are ABBA and everyone loves them,” they said in a recent NME Big Read interview. “If you put [ABBA] on at a party everyone wants to fucking dance to them,” frontman Tom Ogden remarked at a recent review that called Blossoms “marvellously uncool”. “I’ll take it!”
The Stockport four-piece are among a host of bands who have had their upcoming tour dates affected by the coronavirus pandemic, with a number of UK tour dates having to be rescheduled for August.
