Blossoms have eight songs already recorded for their second album.

The Charlemagne outfit - made up of Tom Ogden, Charlie Salt, Josh Dewhurst, Joe Donovan and Myles Kellock - have been riding high on the success of their self-titled dbeut, and while they have plenty of tracks ready to go they won't be dropping it till next year.

Drummer Joe revealed: "The new album is sounding amazing," while frontman Tom  told BBC Newsbeat: "There are still some songs on it that were written last February.

"The album won't be out until probably next year so they'll be two years old by the time it gets released."

The Blown Rose singer even have some song titles ready, though the actual record doesn't have a name yet.

Joe said: "One is called There's A Reason Why I Never Returned Your Calls - but the actual title is There's A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls)'.

Explaining the length, Joe added: "We've got a brackets tune now.

"Everyone agreed we wanted a brackets tune and it was a long title so that's why we did it."

Meanwhile, the alternative rockers paid tribute to one of their biggest influences, by covering an Oasis track at  Manchester's Castlefield Bowl.
