Jesus and Mary Chain's First New Album in Nearly 20 Years Will Arrive in March

Jesus and Mary Chain's First New Album in Nearly 20 Years Will Arrive in March
Scottish rockers the Jesus and Mary Chain have taken their time in following up their 1998 full-length Munki, but that will change come next year with the arrival of a new disc in the spring.

Speaking with CBC Music, Creation Records' Alan McGee confirmed that the band have recorded a long-awaited new disc and would have it out next year.

"They've made another album! It's a big deal! It's unbelievable," McGee said, adding that it would be out through Warner. "It's coming out end of next March. It's kinda enormous!"

The road to a new record has definitely been a long one, with talk of a follow-up to Munki having been around since 2007. Last year, the group made the promise of a new record while touring in support of the 30th anniversary of their iconic album Psychocandy, further adding that the material is "a more mature sound for the Mary Chain."
