Now this is a little special – Lenman has recorded an album of unique covers that range from the instantly identifiable to the extremely niche.

The ex- Reuben man explains: "I feel like the phrase ‘covers album’ has become a bit of a dirty word, which is odd to me - they’re a vital part of our musical landscape. Some of my favourite records are cover albums – Annie Lennox’s ‘Medusa’, Johnny Cash’s ‘Americans’…even those early records by the Beatles and The Specials were mostly covers, and still utterly their sound. I want to redefine the concept of a covers album – not just lazy sound-alikes of 80s classics, not just ironic metal versions of pop tunes – there’s no passion or invention in that, it’s just a smug joke. I may have covered a handful of childhood chart hits on this album, but I’ve also covered songs by relatively unknown artists, and I’ve covered songs by artists from my local music scene who I grew up with and admire.”
