The Stone Roses confirm more new music is coming and say it sounds ‘beautiful’

Reni reportedly spilled the beans at the band's Halifax gig last night (June 7)

The Stone Roses drummer Reni has allegedly confirmed that the band have more new music on its way after they released their first single in over two decades last month.

In May, the band released their first song in 21 years, ‘All For One’. They played the track live for the first time at a warm-up show in Halifax last night (June 7).

A fan who attended the gig posted a message to a Stone Roses fan forum, claiming the Reni told him ahead of the show that they have “100% recorded more music”.


The message reads: “Met Reni tonight in Halifax, had a good chat with him and asked him about new music, he 100% confirmed that they’ve recorded more music than ‘All For One’ and said that it ‘sounds beautiful'”.

The fan went on to add: “He was so positive though and said to just wait and see and all will be revealed. Amazing gig, absolutely buzzing on the way home, the sound wasn’t the best but [guitarist John] Squire absolutely smashed it and the whole band seem to be playing very well together”.

Reni had previously told NME that he would “get his arse kicked” if he revealed the band’s new music plans.
