Iconic late ‘80s/early ‘90s British band The Stone Roses reformed in 2011 and played some high profile shows in 2012 and 2013, including co-headlining a night at Coachella. Since reforming there has of course been speculation as to whether or not we’d hear any new music from the band. Today that speculation can end, as the band has announced that at 3 PM EST today they will release a brand new single. No other info has been given, such as the title or how it will be released. A publicist at Columbia Records simply sent out a one sentence email that read: “The Stone Roses will release a new single today at 3pm ET/12pm PT.” The above photo of the band accompanied the email. It will be the band’s first new music in 22 years, since their 1994 sophomore album, Second Coming.

Earlier this week the band’s lemon logo appeared around the band’s hometown of Manchester, on digital billboards and in record stores. It was previously announced last November that on June 15, 17, and 18 the band will be playing Manchester’s Etihad Stadium and they will be playing a headlining slot at the T in the Park Festival in Scotland on July 8. The band are also playing Madison Square Garden in New York on June 30 and in Rathfarnham, Ireland on July 9.

The Stone Roses’ 1989-released self-titled debut album is regarded as a classic, but its five-years-in-the-making 1994 follow-up album, Second Coming, was not as well received and then they broke up in 1996.

If the new song is embeddable then we shall post it this afternoon. In the meantime, below is a selection of classic Stone Roses videos.
