As a Mancunian, you must be proud to feature on the matchday playlist at Old Trafford?
I was at the QPR game and as I walked up the steps, ‘Take Over The World’ was blasting around the ground. It was a surreal moment and those are the things that you dream of when you’re a kid. I’m not good enough to be on the pitch, but good enough to be on the speakers... I’ll take that!
What can fans expect from your new album, Anna?
It’s the best thing we’ve ever done. I honestly can’t wait for people to hold a physical copy, get the lyrics booklet out and devour the songs. There’s a lack of guitar bands with proper, real, honest songs around at the minute so it feels great to come back with this record.
The Courteeners’ third album, Anna, is released on February 4.
