The Jesus And Mary Chain have confirmed that their reunion will also result in their first album in nine years, since 1998's Munki. Front men and brothers Jim and William Reid were profiled in a recent issue of Uncut magazine where Jim said, "The reunion is not necessarily about any nostalgia trip. There will be a new record, otherwise there wouldn't be any point to reforming." Jim also admitted that they reformed for love, art, money "and a few more things beside." The band is currently on tour throughout Europe, performing songs from their influential fuzz-drenched pop catalogue along with a new song titled "All Things Must Pass."
Longtime JAMC fans may also be excited to hear that the guitar-smith of the Mary Chain, elder brother William Reid, has been working on a solo record of his own. Recording the album in Los Angeles earlier this year, the album has no title and no record label funding, but William has already released a finished track called "Ono Yoko" on his official MySpace page.
