The Pretty Reckless have premiered a new single called “Take Me Down,” which will be featured on the band’s upcoming third album. The yet-to-be-titled studio effort is due out sometime this fall. Singer Taylor Momsen told us not long ago that she’s never sure when the inspiration for a new song is going to strike: [“It’s different every time. There’s no real process or anything. I mean, the writing dictates where the song goes and how it comes together, and my joke is that if I knew where inspiration came from, I’d move there.”] SOUNDCUE (:10 OC: . . . I’d move there.)

  • The cover art for the single has also been posted online.
  • The new disc will follow up 2014’s Going To Hell, which yielded three Number One rock hits in “Heaven Knows,” “Follow Me Down” and “Messed Up World.”
  • The Pretty Reckless became the first female-fronted act to have its first two singles both hit the top spot.
  • Taylor Momsen appeared in movies, commercials and TV shows since she was a child, and was best known for her role on the TV show Gossip Girl. But she has not pursued any new acting gigs since The Pretty Reckless took off.
