Songwriter reveals the previously unreleased 'Black And Blues'

The Jesus And Mary Chain‘s Jim Reid has unveiled a new song, ‘Black And Blues’, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to hear the track.

The singer with the seminal Scottish noise pop band uploaded the track to Soundcloud and the band’s official Twitter page.

Reid wrote of the track: “What I’ve been wasting my time with lately,” underneath the two-and-a-half-minute song, which features the lyric “I don’t have nothing to give, but if I could I’d give my heart speed.”

Famed for their infighting and dysfunctional behaviour, The Jesus And Mary Chain, whose line-up once boasted Primal Scream‘s Bobby Gillespie on drums, announced their split in 1999.

Reid then formed a new band, Freeheat, and released a number of solo singles before reforming JAMC with his brother William in 2007.

The Jesus And Mary Chain will re-issue their entire back catalogue this year, with double CD and DVD versions of their first two albums ‘Psychocandy’ and ‘Darklands’ released on Monday (September 19).
