Band released their first new music in over two decades last Thursday (May 12)
The Manchester band released their first new music in over two decades last Thursday (May 12). The track followed news confirmed by NME earlier this year that the band were holed up in a London studio working on their third album.
New data from music streaming service Deezer now shows that streams for Stone Roses tracks increased by 500 per cent the day following the single release.
Sam Lee, Deezer UK & Ireland’s Music Editor, says of the news: “Despite a lack of new material for two decades, The Stone Roses have continued in popularity among fans of the 90s Madchester’s music scene. While the release of All For One has certainly divided opinion among fans, it would appear the airtime is clearly working in favour of the band with more streams than ever before on Deezer. Who knows, the release may have awakened a new generation to the power of Ian Brown and the boys.”
Rumours about The Stone Roses returning with new music have circulated for years, with the band first reforming for a series of gigs in 2012.
Recent tabloid reports claimed that the group’s third album would arrive this summer to coincide with their upcoming live dates, which include four headline shows at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium.
In addition to their Manchester headline shows, The Stone Roses have gigs lined up in Dublin, New York and Japan, as well as a headline slot at T In The Park.
