Meanwhile, Primal just joined forces with Dexys on the track ‘Enough Is Enough' in support of striking railway workers.
Money raised from the tune is being donated to the Rail, Maritime and Transport union as they protest against low salaries and job cuts.
Dexys frontman Kevin Rowland said: “It is clear to millions that something is very wrong when millionaires get ever richer while workers are told to accept poverty.
“As we say in the song, the media sets out to confuse people with lies and divide us with side issues like Brexit and culture wars while all we are really getting is endless austerity and cuts. We are saying enough is enough.”
