Saint Etienne are likely to resurrect their 1991 single cover of Neil Young‘s “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” when they perform in the Uncut Arena at Latitude Festival on Sunday July 19.

Speaking to, St Etienne front woman Sarah Cracknell also says that they will be playing Fox Base Alpha songs (they recently played the album in it’s entirety live), “but it’ll be mostly singles – an ‘all hits’ set, because we only get a relatively short time to play, and everyone will be in the festival mood. It’ll be more dancey more than anything.”
