Burgess, who is set to release his new solo album ‘I Love The New Sky’ in May, will host playbacks of some of Britpop’s biggest albums, alongside the brains behind them.

There will be a listening party held on Twitter at 10pm GMT each day of the coming week. It’s not clear if the project will extend beyond the week. Burgess kicks things off tomorrow (March 23) with a listening party for The Charlatans’ debut album ‘Some Friendly’ (1990).

Members of Franz Ferdinand join in on Tuesday evening (March 24) for a run through their 2004 debut self-titled album, which was released in 2004. Blur drummer David Rowntree will tune in for ‘Parklife’ (1994) on Wednesday (March 25).

Rounding off the week will be Andy Bell and Loz Colbert for Ride‘s ‘Going Blank Again’ (1994) for Thursday’s session (March 26), and ex-Oasis members Bonehead and Liam Gallagher will join in for ‘Definitely Maybe’ (1994) on Friday (March 27).
