Scottish indie-rockers Frightened Rabbit have announced another single to be lifted from their third studio album, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks.
Living In Colour will be released via FatCat on June 14th 2010, with the single backed by two alternative versions of the album track, one of which is a remix by Andreas Lust.
Frontman Scott Hutchison said about the new single:
“Its a well worn and classic chord progression that, although I have heard it a ton of times before, I really wanted to pin a Frightened Rabbit song onto. Grant decided that he'd not really done much of the unabashed '4 to the floor' type stomping, so we just went with what felt good, keeping the song uncomplicated. The sentiment itself is simple, kind of like I Feel Better but without any of the self-doubt. It describes a new appreciation of the tiniest things in life, a rejuvenated sense of sight and sound, a general tingling of the nerve-endings, following a reasonably bleak time. I basically wanted to write a big rock song about finding joy in things again, something quite at odds with most of our back catalogue. In a sense, by treading this well-worn ground, we ended up with something new for us - which felt good.”
The volcano in Iceland unfortunately put paid to their appearance at last weekend's Coachella Festival but Frightened Rabbit do have a few shows booked for the summer, including Glasto, T in the Park and a supporting slot with Snow Patrol at Bellahouston Park, Glasgow.
