The Coral frontman James Skelly had the time of his life playing Latitude Festival in Southwold on Friday afternoon.
Speaking to Mustard TV following their gig on the Obelisk stage, Skelly reflected on his return to Henham Park. 'I think it might be the fourth time I've played here. It was brilliant, one of the best ones we've done.'

And Latitude has certainly made an impression on him over the years. 'It's definitely one of my favourites. It has always got a good feeling when you're here,' he added.
The singer-songwriter was disappointed to have to leave after the performance, but coming from the North West and having a six-hour drive back, he had to sacrifice watching performances of other artists, notably, for him, Cabbage, another band from the North West, who played on The Lake Stage later on Friday night.
The Coral, who were formed in 1996, have had multiple successes with each of their eight albums, with classic songs like 'Pass It On' and 'In the Morning'. However, despite the success of their earlier music, Skelly was not worried about the reception from the crowd towards their new songs. 'I think the new ones are so good live they just win people over.'

'With Spotify people check all your other tunes out whereas [before] they would have had to buy a CD,' said Skelly.
