29 July 2018, 16:00
The Stockport band have their second LP with a special Radio X Session... and they also performed a big tune from their debut, too.
Blossoms released their second studio album Cool Like You on Friday 27 April.
The album is the follow up to their UK No.1 self-titled debut, which included hits such as Charlemagne and Blown Rose.
The Stockport band came into the Radio X Session studio to perform two tracks From Cool Like You: the singles I Can’t Stand It and There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls).
Speaking to Radio X's Gordon Smart about the difference between their first and second album, frontman Tom Ogden said: "We think it's more of an accomplished body of songs and it sounds more like a whole album, whereas the first one was like singles built up over three and a half years."
On Cool Like You's "soundtrack-y" new sound, he added: "It's a lot more upbeat this album. We consciously did that with the songs, because we wanted to take the live set up a level."
Blossoms also played a banger from their self-titled debut album, the 2015 single Charlemagne.
