The Verve – World Exclusive download on NME.COM

Download the band's first new music in ten years for free - now!

Hear the first 14 minutes of music The Verve made after deciding to reunite for free on NME.COM from today (October 22).

Rather than kicking off their reformation with a band meeting, the Wigan legends met in a studio in Richmond and jammed out some musical ideas together.

The first fruits from that session can now be heard today for the first time from 10.30am (BST) in the form of the ‘The Thaw Session’ – the title a reference to ‘Deep Freeze’, an experimental bonus track on the band’s last album ‘Urban Hymns’ – a 14-minute track you can get for free.

To download a free version of the band’s first new music in over ten years, simply head to NME.COM/verve from 10.30am. The download will be available for seven days only.

Once you’ve got your free copy of the track let us know what you think of it.

Have your say on the new Verve track and debate with other music fans on the NME.COM messageboards now.

Meanhile the band have added a new date to their comeback tour, playing Nottingham Arena on December 11.
