Idles' Joe Talbot is set to read a tale on CBeebies’ 'Bedtime Stories'.

The 33-year-old frontman of the British rock band is thrilled to have landed the gig as he loves reading to his own child.

He said in a statement: “It’s an honour to announce that I am reading a CBeebies Bedtime Story.

“I can NOT express how much I love reading to my kid so this was a welcome twist in an already beautiful career. All love.”

The 'POP POP POP' songwriter will read the tome ‘Under the Love Umbrella’ by Davina Bell.

The likes of Dave Grohl, Sir Elton John, Harry Styles, and Dolly Parton have read a story on the popular children's show.

Joe's episode will be broadcast at 6.50pm GMT on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer.

Meanwhile, Joe recently admitted that becoming a dad made him more "delicate" and that is apparent on their new album, 'Tangk'.

In a recent interview with NME, he explained: “‘Delicate’ is the word. Since becoming a father, I’ve addressed that in my art. I was a very impatient man; even after sobriety. I was nasty back in the day when I wanted to be, and I hurt a lot of people. I wanted to stop, and that takes time and forgiveness. I found patience, but in the most beautiful way..."

He added: “I’ve learned from being a dad that to go through things with grace, be delicate and to celebrate the small beautiful things that you can overlook so easily if you’re impatient with the world, you miss out on a lot of tiny details that will make your day. It’s got to come out in my art, because that’s how I am.”

The LP has just topped the Midweek UK Chart and looks likely to nab No.1, in front of Paloma Faith's 'The Glorification of Sadness', which is new at No.2.

'Tangk' is the follow-up to 2021's 'Crawler', which was a Top 10 in the UK.
