Peppa Pig is a fan of Enter Shikari’s latest album, calling it “great” on Twitter.
The animated pink porcine preschool children’s TV favourite and the St Albans group seem unlikely bedfellows.
However, Peppa Pig played a part in the recording of Enter Shikari’s sixth studio album, Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible.
The revelation came during Enter Shikari’s stint on Tim’s Twitter Listening Party earlier this month.
The Charlatans singer Tim Burgess has been holding regular full album listening parties on Twitter with various groups and singers since lockdown.

In tweeting about the track, Enter Shikari guitarist Rory Clewlow announced Peppa Pig’s role in the creative process.

The official Peppa Pig Twitter account replied to Rory’s tweet, endorsing the album which came out earlier this year.
Peppa Pig tweeted: “Glad to have contributed to such a great album!”
After the listening party, Rory thanked the band’s fans.
He tweeted: “Thank you all for listening to our album! Thank you @Tim_Burgess for having us. It’s been emotional #NothingIsTrue #timstwitterlisteningparty”
