The Pretty Reckless performed the song “Take Me Down” on Tuesday night’s (February 28th) edition of Conan O’Brien‘s late night talk show Conan. The band was accompanied by a trio of backing singers on the song, which was the first single released from their third and latest album, Who You Selling For.
The latest single from the disc, “Oh My God,” is currently Number Four on rock radio. Although some have interpreted the song as being about the “burden” of fame, singer Taylor Momsen disagrees: [“I can see how someone would take it that way, and it’s not that to me, but I can see how if you related this record to me being famous then you could take it that way. But really, none of that is the case.”]
- The Pretty Reckless last year broke a record set by 3 Doors Down when “Take Me Down” became the fourth mainstream single released by the group to hit Number One on Billboard‘s rock chart.
- “Take Me Down” followed in the footsteps of “Heaven Knows,” “Messed Up World” and “Follow Me Down” from 2014’s Going To Hell album. The Pretty Reckless also now have the most Number One singles by a female-fronted rock act.
- “Oh My God” could tie or break the next record, five Number One singles, which is owned for now by Canada’s Three Days Grace.
- The Pretty Reckless will launch a new North American tour on April 26th in Washington D.C.
