22 years after 1994's Second Coming, the Stone Roses are finally preparing to release their 3rd album.

The Stone Roses are preparing to release their third album – more than 20 years after their second, according to reports.

The reformed band announced a set of live dates in Manchester and Scotland in November, having got back together in 2012. And there have been rumours of new studio material ever since.

According to the Mirror, a source said: “Ian Brown and the lads have been busy getting their next album ready. It will be album number three.

“It’s a long time coming but they feel the time is right now. They’ve been back in the studio. Everyone is very excited about it.”

Announcing the live dates last year, another unnamed source was quoted by the Sun as saying that fans hoping for a new album would soon be “getting their wish”. The source reportedly added: “When the band reunited in 2012 there was never any concrete plans. But now they feel everything is in place to record a new album”.

A spokesman for the band did not respond to a request for comment on Sunday.

Many Stone Roses fans will have hoped to have got their hands on a new album already – the band’s bassist, Mani, having promised a new release for 2015. Speaking two years earlier, he said the band had been “working on a few bits” and, asked when a release could be expected, he said: “2015 man, 2015.”

However, earlier in 2013, Mani’s bandmate John Squire had predicted a new album would take “about five years” to finish.

After a successful first album in 1989, the band got into a legal fight with their record label and did not release any new material for five years. Two years after their follow-up album Second Coming, the band split up.

I think, if I'd bought tickets to T in the Park, say, just to see the Stone Roses, I'd be pretty angry to hear they'll be playing ropey new stuff instead of just the first album. But you never know, it might be quite good.
