Noel Gallagher hints at new music from The Stone Roses: ‘They’re blooming’

Oasis man was appearing on football show 'Soccer AM' when he made the comments

Noel Gallagher has suggested that there could soon be renewed activity from The Stone Roses.

The Manchester band reformed in 2011 after originally breaking up in 1996. They played a series of gigs around the world in 2012 and 2013, but have remained seemingly inactive for the past two years.

There have been rumours the band are working on what would be their third album, the follow-up to 1994’s ‘Second Coming’.

Appearing on Soccer AM on Saturday (October 24), the former Oasis guitarist was asked if he had “any idea what’s going on with the Roses”, to which he replied coyly: “Yes. I know exactly what’s going on… They’re blooming.”

During the interview, Gallagher also stated that his next album (or “magic trick”, as Gallagher referred to it) won’t be finished until after his tour ends in April 2016.

He also said and “life is too short” to have a Twitter account.

In June 2013, The Stone Roses released the documentary The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone, directed by Shane Meadows. It charted their reformation, triumphant homecoming gigs at Manchester’s Heaton Park and beyond.

Pressed on any information about forthcoming Stone Roses material at a charity event last year, Ian Brown remained taciturn. “Is something happening? You never know, but I’m not here to talk about that,” he said.
