Courteeners have just unveiled the new video How Good It Was, the title track taken from the recently announced EP.
'How Good It Was' will also feature on the bands highly anticipated fourth album, Concrete Love which is due on Monday August 18 via PIAS. It follows the success of their taster track ‘Summer’ which was made available to fans earlier this month.
Lead singer and songwriter Liam Frey has said that "With Summer we were just teasing. This is the real deal. I had the same feeling with ‘How Good It Was’ that I had with ‘Are You In Love With A Notion'. As soon as I'd written it, it just felt right. It was a perfect fit straight away. Like an APC bomber jacket. We were honoured to have members of the BBC Philharmonic and Halle orchestras play on it too, which was incredible. The other three songs were really difficult to leave off the album in all honesty. They could've easily nestled in amongst the others on ‘Concrete Love’. ‘Why Are You Still With Him?’ was written in New York a few years ago about a good friend of mine. I'm happy to be able to finally give it a good home."
The band will be headlining the Radio 1/NME stage at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival and will also appear as special guests to The Killers at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park on Tuesday August 19.
