The band often cover the 1996 track at their shows but opt only to play a snippet of it rather than the full song.
Earlier today (June 6), frontman Ogden shared a video of himself playing the song on an acoustic guitar. “Always do a bit of this tune at the end of ‘My Favourite Room’ so thought I’d do the full tune,” he wrote. Watch the full cover below now.

Since the coronavirus pandemic put the UK on lockdown, the Stockport band have shared a series of covers recorded in self-isolation. Their latest arrived last weekend (May 31) and saw them team up with The Courteeners’ Liam Fray on a version of the Manchester band’s ‘Please Don’t’.
Other recent videos have seen the group cover Frank Ocean and The Beatles, as well as collaborating with Miles Kane on a Tame Impala cover.
The lockdown covers will be collated on a special ‘Blossoms In Isolation’ album, produced on CD and vinyl, later this year.
