Published May 18, 2015In 2012, John Lydon resurrected his Public Image Ltd. to release This is PiL. Proving the reunion was more than a one-off thing, the group have announced plans for a new LP.
The release is called What the World Needs Now... and marks the band's 10th album overall. In a press release, Lydon said, "Buy now while stocks last."
