The Kooks reinvention continues with the release of stunning new single ‘Forgive and Forget’, taken from genre defying album ‘Listen’, September 8th on Virgin/EMI.

Produced by young hip hop pioneer Inflo and Luke Pritchard ‘Forgive and Forget’ is a song oozing with joy from start to finish combining gospel singers, funky bass lines and a euphoric chorus that will be the sound of the summer.

The Kooks have already laid down the gauntlet for the year ahead with swaggering first taster ‘Down’, sumptuous second single ‘Around Town’ and a blinding set at Radio 1’s Big Weekend.

After the success of their mini tour in May, complete with a sold out show at The Electric Ballroom, the multi platinum selling band have already thrilled with a surprise slot at Glastonbury and are scheduled to play Ibiza Rocks and Reading/Leeds.

The Kooks are: Luke Pritchard - vocals and guitar, guitarist Hugh Harris, bassist Pete Denton and drummer Alexis Nunez.
