Britpop legends The Stone Roses have a reunion planned for next year, including several festival performances and promises of new material in the works. Firsties on hearing the new songs will go to the executives at Universal and Columbia Records, as the band has signed on with the two major labels to record and release their first album in 17 years. Universal will take care of the band in the UK and Columbia will handle the band in the U.S. The news was confirmed by the band’s Facebook page (via NME).
No word on how many records the band has agreed to, but it will be the first new recorded material since The Stone Roses’ second and less seminal album, 1994’s The Second Coming. Listen to “Ten Storey Love Song” from that album below.
