Concrete Blonde releases new single; videos, eastern US tour coming
Written by admin on November 14, 2012
L.A. punk pioneers Concrete Blonde will introduce a new single in conjunction with an east coast December tour. â€œRosaleeâ€ and â€œI See the Ghostâ€ will be available as both a download and a seven-inch white vinyl record.
â€œRosaleeâ€ is a country ballad sung about a lonely cowboy longing for his lady, heavily reflecting singer Johnette Napolitanoâ€™s desert surroundings near her home. The B-side track, â€œI See the Ghostâ€ is a more vintage Concrete Blonde syncopated punk song referencing spiritual influences. Napolitano emphasizes that aspect of the cutâ€™s message: â€œIt’s about people who think they can get away with things, who try to fake their way through life . . . [who think] that they’re always being watchedâ€
Both tracks were recorded and produced at Stagg Street Studios in Van Nuys, CA with the bandâ€™s long-time engineer Anne Catalino.
