Post-punk band goes medieval in new album

Sumer Is Icumen In is believed to be the oldest known song in the English language. Now the post-punk band, The Futureheads, is giving the song new life when it is included in their a cappella album Rant, to be released in April 2012.

"The fact that it's a round is a challenge for us, it'll be interesting when we perform it live," said guitarist and vocalist Ross Millard. The song is sung in Middle English dialect.
