Band's first album for 20 years will drop on May 28
Public Image Ltd. have announced the tracklisting for their new album ‘This Is PiL’.
The LP, which is the follow-up to 1992’s ‘That What Is Not’, is John Lydon and co’s first studio album in 20 years and will be released through the band’s own PiL Official label on May 28. The band are also set to release an EP titled ‘One Drop’ on April 21, to coincide with this year’s Record Store Day.
Speaking previously about the LP, Lydon likened his new material to “folk music”, adding: “It comes from the heart and the soul. Whether that be electric, acoustic, digital or analogue, that’s still heart and soul. It’s not pop fodder and finely crafted pieces of fluff.”
Previously, meanwhile, the singer claimed that the reason the band had struggled to find a record label they wanted to work with was because of the popularity of shows such as The X Factor and the music industry’s unwillingness to take risks.
The tracklisting for ‘This Is PiL’ is as follows:
‘This Is PiL’
‘I Must Be Dreaming’
‘It Said That’
‘The Room That I Am In’
‘Out Of The Woods’
