All praise Creation Records founder Alan McGee, for he was rightThe Jesus and Mary Chain will return next year with their first new album in 18 years, Damage and Joy.

Due out March 24th via ADA/Warner Music, the long-awaited follow-up to 1998’s Munki was produced by Killing Joke co-founder Martin Glover, aka Youth, who also plays bass on the record alongside JAMC touring drummer Brian Young and Lush bassist Phil King.

The album’s first single and opening track, “Amputation”, premiered on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music today. Better yet, you don’t really need your ear buds; this one’s pure melody, sounding like something off an indie soundtrack from 1996. Stream below.

Also below is the album’s vintage cover art and its tracklist.
