Courteeners: band release bonus track from upcoming St Jude anniversary album - how to listen and pre-order

Courteeners are marking the 15th anniversary of their debut album next year

Manchester band Courteeners have announced a special bonus track for their upcoming ‘St Jude 15th Anniversary Edition’ album.

Lead singer Liam Fray teased fans with a post on his Twitter page yesterday (7 September) at 5pm.

It covered the potential of something new that was found during the planning for their St Jude anniversary planning.

His tweet read: “We unearthed a little gem whilst  looking through the vaults for St.Jude.

“It’ll Take More Than A Weekend Away To Fix This Mess’

“Out tomorrow. 5pm.”

What is ‘It’ll Take More Than A Weekend Away To Fix This Mess’?

This is a Courtneers song which seems to be previously unreleased, and the tweet from Liam Fray suggested that the announcement would be something related to the release of this song.

This was the speculation, and now we know that the song is a bonus track that will be part of the album set to be released next year.

How can I preorder the album?

Fans can preorder the special edition album by visiting the official Courteeners website.

You can also listen to the new track by visiting the same website.

The album will then be released on 13 January 2023.

The unveiling of the ‘little gem’ comes just days after the band’s special Heaton Park show sold out in a matter of hours.

The show is to mark the 15th anniversary of the band’s debut album ‘St Jude’ and takes place on 9 June 2023.

The show will see the iconic St Jude album played in its entirety 15 years after Courtneers first released it.
