The details of a much-touted Stone Roses remix album featuring Paul Oakenfold, Grooverider, 808 STATE, MINT ROYALE and JON CARTER are being finalised, nme.com can exclusively reveal

The album, titled ‘The Stone Roses: The Remixes’, has been touted by the band’s original record label Silvertone for some time, but it has now been given a provisional release date of October 30 on CD and double vinyl.

The album will consist of previously remixed tracks “from the vaults”, as well as brand new remixes by artists such as Mint Royale and Jon Carter.

Speaking previously about the project, Mint Royale said: “It’s the sort of thing that everybody owns a copy of. It’s nice to be given the chance to pick a track and fiddle around with it. We want to remix ‘Elephant Stone’ because it’s a favourite track and it’s the right kind of speed and it’s got bits we can use”, while Jon Carter admitted to nme.com he was involved because the Stone Roses are “quite simply the best band of my time”.

A complete tracklisting for the album will be finalised shortly.
