Stone Roses to release five singles this year

Manchester legends set to reissue classic singles

Five singles by The Stone Roses are set to be reissued this summer in conjunction with the 20th anniversary reissue of their self-titled debut album.

One single a week from July 6 will be issued on seven-inch vinyl and download formats, kicking off with their 1988 song ‘Elephant Stone’.

Each release will come backed with untitled, previously-unreleased recordings by the Manchester legends.

The release schedule is:

‘Elephant Stone’/ ‘The Hardest Thing In The World’ / ‘Untitled 1’ (download) July 6
‘Made Of Stone’/ ‘Going Down’/ ‘Untiled 2’ (download) July 13
‘She Bangs The Drums’/ ‘Standing Here’/ ‘Untitled 3’ (download) July 20
‘Fools Gold’/ ‘What The World Is Waiting For’/ ‘Untitled 4’ (download) July 27
‘One Love’/ ‘Something’s Burning’/ ‘Untitled 5’ (download) August 3

A collectable box will be released alongside ‘Elephant Stone’ featuring space for the remaining singles plus art prints by guitarist John Squire.

Two special editions of The Stone Roses‘ 1989 debut album, a “collector’s” and “legacy” edition, are set for release on August 10.

Earlier this year it was rumoured that The Stone Roses might reform, although guitarist John Squire has since said there is no chance he will play with the seminal band again.
