The 'Learn To Love Again' singer says he and the boys can't wait to perform with her at the UK music festival.

Lawson frontman Andy Brown has revealed that band are massive fans of Jessie J and couldn't be more excited about supporting her at iTunes Festival 2013.

Earlier this week (7th August) it was announced that the 'Brokenhearted' four-piece will open for Jessie at the Camden Roundhouse on 23rd September as part of the annual month-long music festival.

'Standing In The Dark' singer Andy says they are all big fans of the 'Wild' star and even credits her with being one of the best female vocalists around right now.

"Yeah we are huge fans of her," Andy exclusively told Capital FM this week. "She's a really really nice girl, really down to Earth. 

"We've done a few gigs [with her], the best gig we did with her was probably in Montreux in Switzerland, we did the Jazz Festival out there with her and she was incredible, we watched her set," he explained.

"It's great to work with some of your idols because I think she's literally one of the best female vocalists in the world right now," Andy added. "So we're just honoured to be on the same line-up."

Last month the UK band were back in the recording studio working on new music for their upcoming repackaged edition of their debut album 'Chapman Square'.
