The Voice coach Ricky Wilson will include a poem called The Occupation on his band’s new album.

Kaiser Chiefs lead singer Ricky wrote The Occupation, with references to warfare, and it will feature as a spoken word track on the Leeds band’s new release Education, Education, Education & War, later this month.

Ricky says the poem is not about any particular conflict. He told The Independent it could be about “World War One, or Afghanistan or space travel”.

He added: “I want people to get out of it what they get out of it.”
