It's been over 20 years since The Stone Roses released any new music, but that all changes today, reports The Guardian. At Noon Pacific Time, The Stone Roses will be unveiling a new track. They have not given even the slightest indication of what it might be, no name, no description, just a time.
The Guardian goes on to report, "The new song will be their first new studio material since the B-sides to the single Ten Storey Love Song in March 1995 – fans have been waiting 21 years since the band revealed Moses and Ride On, neither of which featured on the album Second Coming.
New music from the Roses had been expected for some time. Earlier this year, singer Ian Brown told the NME the band had been recording at producer Paul Epworth's studio in north London. He said their new music was "glorious". The likelihood of new music was further signalled earlier this week, when billboards bearing the band's lemon insignia appeared around Manchester, their hometown."
The outlet adds, "Rumours of new material have circulated ever since the band announced their reunion. In May 2012, a screenwriter called Chris Coghill, working on the film Spike Island, claimed the band had "at least three or four new songs recorded". No sign of them appeared, however."
The Stone Roses last album, Second Coming, was released in 1994. At this time, there is no word on whether the band plan on releasing a full album. The Stone Roses are set to play four nights at Etihad Stadium in Manchester, U.K. and at the T in the Park festival.
