Courteeners have announced that they will release their new album ‘ANNA’ on February 4 with a new single Lose Control, which is lifted from the album on January 28, both released via V2.
The album was recorded at Manchester’s Hertz Studios with producer Joe Cross (Hurts) and songwriter and frontman Liam Fray says, “ANNA is a new chapter sonically for Courteeners. Our music, like our minds, has evolved and expanded. We have re-arrived – Welcome to the rave”.
Having already previewed new tracks live at this year’s T in the Park and Leeds/Reading Festivals, the band will release the first introduction to the album with new single Lose Control on February 28.
Lose Control opens with an addictive hook followed by Liam’s distinctive vocals which then catapult into a huge chorus of drums and melody. It the perfect introduction to the new sound of the bands third album. Listen to a very promising teaser with a catchy riff for Lose Control below via YouTube.
