The Stone Roses are set to release a brand new studio album in 2013, according to tabloid reports this morning (August 2).

The Manchester legends, who originally split up in 1996, reunited last year and have taken part in globe trotting reunion tour this year, which has included three sold-out gigs at Manchester's Heaton Park and a series of festival headline sets.

When the band reunited they signed a new two-album deal with Universal Records, but have debuted no new material in their live sets so far. However, according to today's The Sun, they will release a brand new album next year.

A source told the tabloid: "John [Squire] and Ian [Brown] have been sending each other ideas for over a year now. During rehearsals they have tried some new songs and really felt that the old magic was still there with the songwriting. They have decided they will give it another spin with new music next year."

The report also suggests that the band will play a secret gig later this week for Adidas to help celebrate the Olympic games, though no details on when or where that will take place have emerged as yet.

The Stone Roses will headline next month's V Festival in Chelmsford and Stafforshire as well as Northern Ireland's Tennent's Vital Festival.
