We here at Absolutely Kosher Records are practically peeing in our pants with excitement to officially announce the commencement of recording for The Wrens fourth full length album. To kick off recording the band is offering up the new single, "Pulled Fences" digitally (available as of today!!!!). "Pulled Fences" was recorded at the historic and incomparable Abbey Road Studios for WORLDSPACE satellite radio in London, England and marks the first time since 1999 that Charles, Kevin, Jerry and Greg were in one room working on new music together.I thought that press release was definitely worth quoting in full.
Additionally, 2009 marks The Wrens' 20th anniversary as a band. Throughout The Wrens' 20 years together it has been a secret challenge that if they we were ever able to play in a setting that seemed rather important like lets say, ABBEY ROAD!.... That they would have the guts to make up a brand new song on the spot... and that is exactly what happened with "Pulled Fences". Keep in mind that this was a pretty precarious undertaking, given that the song was being broadcast over the internet, video-taped, and there was a small live audience in the room. Kevin had written "Pulled Fences" ahead of time, but Charles, Greg and Jerry had never seen the chords, or heard the song. What you hear in "Pulled Fences" is a first take. It was rather risky to say the least... which of course, made it that much better.
"Pulled Fences" is available now at The Wrens brand spanking new website, Absolutely Kosher Records brand spanking new website, iTunes and Amazon.com. The album is schedule for release in late spring. And by "scheduled," we mean...fingers crossed...
