The Stone Roses have written two songs for their long awaited new album, according to Suede’s Brett Anderson.
Anderson, who is soon to release a comeback album with his own band, revealed to NME that he had some inside information on the Manchester band’s progress. “I spoke to Mani a couple of months ago,” he said. “I saw him at a party, and he said they’d written a couple of songs.”
The Suede frontman added that he is interested in hearing what the Roses come up with. “I’d love to hear some new stuff from them. They were a really special band and I’ve got a lot of goodwill for them. It’ll be nice to hear. Whether it’s soon is another matter.”
The Stone Roses, who originally split up in 1996, reunited last year and undertook a globetrotting reunion tour in 2012, including three sold-out gigs at Manchester’s Heaton Park and a series of festival headline sets.
When the band reunited they signed a new two-album deal with Universal Records, but debuted no new material in their live sets last year.
