The EP, called Live and Acoustic and available on all streaming platforms, features two previously unreleased live performances of Heartbeat and This Ain’t a Love Song, alongside performances of some of their biggest hits from their first two albums, including a trio of songs recorded at Nottingham ArenaIt follows the release of Easy Cover earlier this year, celebrating their love of 1980s music and culture, featuring versions of some of the decade’s biggest songs, such as Everybody Wants to Rule the World and The Whole of the Moon, as well as some new songs inspired by the era.

The band said: “We’re not trying to do justice to these songs, that’s impossible. We’re just trying to have fun and take them out on the road to give people the night out they deserve after 2020.”
