Zutons gear up for Glastonbury with new single ‘Pauline’


Ahead of their Glastonbury 2024 gig, The Zutons have shared a new single, ‘Pauline’. Check it out below.

The Liverpool band released their first album in 16 years, ‘The Big Decider’, on 26th April, and ‘Pauline’ is the third single from the record.

It’s a soulful track with plenty of groove and a real party vibe, all accompanied by saxophone, proving that the quartet haven’t lost their spark over the past decade and a half.

“Pauline is a song about all the women who have helped me in my life and the times you bump into them after years of not seeing them,” says frontman Dave McCabe. “You see how much they’ve grown up, but they still have that spark in them. Aunties, cousins, mums, grandmas and especially my wife. It’s my ode to them all.” Because without those women, I wouldn’t be the man I am today.

McCabe also recently spoke about the band’s biggest hit, “Valerie.” While it was a hit for The Zutons in 2006, it reached a whole new level of popularity when Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse released a cover the following year.

He told ZikNation in Does Rock ‘n’ Roll Kill Brain Cells?! that the cover came about after Winehouse told him to “fuck off,” saying, “I ran out of the house in a strop, and she followed me and begged me, ‘Please come back.’ I’m sorry I told you to f*** off,” he continued. “I really like that song” (“Valerie”). We went home and continued drinking.

On Sunday 30th June, The Zutons will be performing on The Other Stage at Glastonbury – the band previously played the festival in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2008. They will be on stage from 11.15am until 12pm.

If you’re not at Worthy Farm this year, you can still catch The Zutons tour with Paul Heaton. They’ve announced that they’ll be supporting the former Housemartins and Beautiful South singer on his UK tour later this year. You can find tickets here.

They’ve also got plenty more tour dates lined up throughout the summer. They’re joining The Libertines at On The Beach in Redcar on 5th July and supporting ska legends Madness on three dates later in the month. They’ll also be touring the US in September.
