John Lydon’s Public Image Ltd Return With Confrontational New Track ‘Double Trouble’

Earlier this year, incendiary post punk outfit Public Image Ltd – fronted by legendary aggravator John Lydon – announced details of their 10th studio LP ‘What The World Needs Now…’ – set for release on September 4. Following on from 2012’s ‘This Is PiL’, it cements the group as firmly back in action after a previous lengthy hiatus.

The first taste of the record comes in the form of ‘Double Trouble’, and it beats just as uncompromisingly to its own drum as you’ve come to expect from the man known as Johnny Rotten. What’s more, the singer also drew the artwork – partly inspired by Native American Hopi characters – for the single release himself. Have a listen to the track below.
