Courteeners unveil the video for new single Lose Control released on 28th January through V2. The single is succeeded by the release of the bands third studio album ‘Anna’ out 4th February.
Shot and directed by Joe Connor, the video captures the band performing against a series of projected images against the backdrop of a Manchester warehouse.

It has been two years since Courteeners last album ‘Falcon’, which charted at #6 and followed the bands #4 debut album ‘St. Jude’. The band have been working hard at Manchester’s 80 Hertz Studios with producer Joe Cross (Hurts) and songwriter and frontman Liam Fray says, "Anna is a new chapter sonically for Courteeners.
