‘Beautiful Thing’ follows the release of ‘All For One’ last month, which was The Roses’ first piece of new music for over two decades.
When lemons appear on the streets of Manchester, it’s a tell tale sign that The Stone Roses are about to make an announcement.
Last time was in November last year, shortly before it was announced that the band would be performing a series of reunion concerts – including some at the Etihad – this month.
So when lemons were spotted across the city centre last month, the speculation began.
The Madchester band announced via their own Twitter account that they will releasing their first single for twenty years.
Which just goes to prove that good things come to those who wait.
