Public Image Announce Record Store Day EP, Gear Up for New Album's Spring Release
An interview with Lydon on BBC 6music today (February 13) had the singer confirming that the album has been completed, and that we can expect it in either May or June.
"The album's done," he said. "We finished it late last summer, mastered it in September."
While neither a tracklisting nor a firm street date has been delivered, a teaser EP to the album will arrive on Record Store Day. The One Drop EP will drop on April 21, and Lydon describes it as "four songs to give you a taste of what the album is, which is 12 songs; it's a lot of music we put together, and all of it's rather all right."
The title track was premiered on BBC host Steve Lamacq's program this afternoon.
UPDATE: You can stream "One Drop" below courtesy of Slicing Up Eyeballs. This is PiL will arrive on May 28.
This is PiL will be the band's first album since 1992's That What Is Not.
Thanks to Slicing Up Eyeballs for the tip.
