Public Image Ltd, the band fronted by John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten from Sex Pistols), have shared "Double Trouble." It's the first single to be released from the band's forthcoming 10th studio album, What the World Needs Now..., which is due out on September 4 via the band's own label PiL Official. It's also the album's opening track. Lydon says that the song was inspired by an argument he had with his wife about plumbing, which is obvious when hearing the lyrics.
