The Courteeners unveiled a number of songs from their forthcoming third album at 02 Apollo Manchester last night (December 8).

Liam Fray and co premiered three new tracks in the setlist – 'Lose Control', 'Welcome To The Rave' and 'Why Are You Still With Him' – while also giving the first live airing to 'Last Of The Ladies', a track from their 2010 LP 'Falcon'.

The band also played another new song, 'Save Rosemary In Time', which was first played at their gigs at Delamere Forest earlier this year.

Fray admitted to the sold-out crowd that he had been "a bit nervous" about airing the new material, though he predicted that 'Lose Control' would "be fucking massive".

Speaking to NME this summer, Fray hinted at an "eclectic" follow-up to 2010's 'Falcon' and spoke of his dream of working with Adele. The band are currently working on new material at a studio in Manchester, with a spring release date expected for the album.

The Courteeners played:

'The Opener'
'Scratch Your Name Upon My Lips'
'Save Rosemary In Time'
'Lose Control'
'Good Times Are Calling'
'Please Don't'
'Welcome To The Rave'
'Bide Your Time'
'You Overdid It, Doll'
'Fallowfield Hillbilly'
'Last Of The Ladies'
'Why Are You Still With Him?'
'How Come?'
'No You Didn't, No You Don't'
'Take Over the World'
'Not Nineteen Forever'
'What Took You So Long?'

The Courteeners will play at the O2 Apollo Manchester again tonight (9) and tomorrow (10). To watch a video interview with Fray, where NME discovers just how rock'n'roll the frontman really is, scroll down and click below.
