Like many bands and artists, Courteeners haven't been able to perform due to the banning of mass gatherings, but Liam Fray has still found ways to connect with his fans.

The Not Nineteen Forever rocker joined Liam Gallagher for Manchester's Together In One Voice singalong event last month, and also took part in his own Insta Live gigs from home.

Fray previously marked the death of the legendary soul artist Bill Withers with a cover of Lean On Me.

He captioned it: "Lean on Me.

"For anyone that might need it

"Rest Easy Bill x"
