Download First New Verve Material In Ten Years

[b]The Verve[/b] have made 14 minutes of brand new material available to download from today (October 22).

The band's first new material - entitled 'The Thaw Session' is the band's first to emerge since they announced their reformation after an eight year hiatus.

Rather than talking over ideas for their reunion with a band meeting, the Wigan legends met in a studio in Richmond and jammed out some musical ideas together, resulting in the track they have given to Uncut's sister title NME.

The track will be available for seven days only.
