Listen to The Stone Roses’ second comeback single

Hot on the heels of their first single in 21 years, Manchester indie legends The Stone Roses have aired another new track, titled Beautiful Thing. You can listen to it below.

Like its predecessor, All For One, Beautiful Thing is a punchy psych-rock number that attempts to re-create their signature sound – the trademark baggy beat, guitars played through a wah-wah pedal, etc.

It’s hardly earth-shatteringly brilliant stuff, but it’s a marked improvement on their first comeback single.

The group, fronted by Ian Brown, became indie legends in the late 1980s with their self-titled debut album, which included classic tunes like I Wanna Be Adored and I Am the Resurrection.

It was named the Best British Album Of All Time by music bible NME in 2006, and came runner-up in a Channel 4 poll to find the best album of the millennium in 1997.

The Stone Roses split after the follow-up, 1994’s Second Coming, and there had been no sign of any new recordings until now.

The band will headline at this year’s T in the Park festival in July.
