The Concretes release 'Chosen One', the first single from their hotly-anticipated new album 'In Colour' on 6th March on EMI Records.
'Chosen One' is indicative of 'In Colour' and like the rest of the album, has been produced by Mike Mogis (Conor Oberst's longtime co-conspirator, live musical director and producer for Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis & Rilo Kiley, The Faint et al). It is the first time that Mogis has worked outside of his own Presto! Studio in Omaha.
