Sex Pistols have signed a new record deal ahead of releasing an expanded and repackaged version of 'Never Mind The Bollocks'.

The punk legends have inked a deal with Universal Music Catalogue UK to put out a 35th anniversary edition of their classic 1977 album. Other events and releases, currently under wraps, are being planned throughout the year.

Commenting, frontman Johnny Rotten said:

Music can be great, when done by the great. The Sex Pistols are the greatest. Universal now has a trophy room, music is the imitation of nature, the Sex Pistols are nature, so please give generously. Thank you.


Karen Simmonds from the label added: "To be given the opportunity to re-evaluate the Sex Pistols catalogue is every music lover’s dream. We’re looking forward to working with the band and celebrating their impact on worldwide culture."

Meanwhile, to read an exclusive interview with Rotten, where he discusses the 35th anniversary of the Sex Pistols doomed label deal with A&M Records, pick up the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally from Wednesday (February 29).
