The Stone Roses to issue a new single


We’ve already seen Radiohead issue their new album on a Sunday in the last few days, and now The Stone Roses are joining in this release tomfoolery with a brand new single, planned for 8pm this evening.

The band left the brief announcement on their facebook page and no other details are forthcoming at this point in time. Given the putting-the-kids-to-bed timing, one can only presume that your local record emporium won’t be working overtime with physical product ready at ’20 hundred hours’ – rather this will, at least initially, be a digital release. Hell, maybe they’ll just bung something up on YouTube or Soundcloud – who knows! Labels and artists do play fast and loose with the phrase “releasing a single” these days (see: Duran Duran who haven’t ‘bothered’ with a physical single for nine years).

The Mancunians have a number of shows planned for this year including four nights at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium in mid June and a venue with a slightly more rock ‘n’ roll pedigree, Madison Square Garden at the end of next month. The Stone Roses’ last single was Begging You from late 1995 which peaked at number 15 in the UK (although a four-track live EP, Crimson Tonight, was issued in Japan and Australia).

Update: The song is called “All For One” – you can listen to it below.

A twentieth anniversary of their self-titled debut was issued in 2009 but so far a second coming of The Second Coming has not been forthcoming. However Sony will be issuing The Very Best of The Stone Roses on 2LP vinyl on 10 June 2016.
