About this item

Courteeners will mark the 10th anniversary of their debut album with a new, fully re-recorded version of the seminal record and two massive shows in London and Manchester.

Following Liam Fray’s recent sold out acoustic tour of the UK, the band have recorded an unplugged version of St. Jude for release on 6th April 2018 via Ignition Records. St. Jude Re:Wired has been produced by Liam and Joe Cross. 

Originally released in April 2008, St. Jude charted at no 4 in its first week and went on to win the inaugural Guardian First British Album award, beating albums by Duffy, Adele and Glasvegas. The record saw Courteeners present to the world outside a first set of songs that perfectly soundtracked modern life in the UK. Lead track Not Nineteen Forever has amassed over 20 million streams on Spotify alone.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Unforgettable acoustic versions of one of Manchester's most beloved modern indie staples. The acoustic versions on this reworks LP represent the drive of the originals but with a more nuanced outlook, each instrument and Fray's voice working together uninterrupted and unrivalled. Lovely.
