Noel Gallagher: The Stone Roses are ‘blooming’


Noel Gallagher has offered up the tiniest hint that the Stone Roses may yet emerge with a new album.

During an appearance on the British breakfast show Soccer AM on Saturday (October 24th), which helped to promote his recently announced 2016 UK arena tour, Gallagher was asked by host Fenners if he had ‘any idea’ what the current status of the Manchester band is, and replied coyly by saying that they are ‘blooming’. Check out a part of the interview below.

Again, it’s a small chink of light right enough, but it’s something nonetheless for fans to cling to as hopes of a third studio album from the Roses have gradually faded since a 2012 European comeback tour was completed virtually without incident.

When that unlikely return was confirmed at a press conference sometime back now in October 2011, frontman Ian Brown immediately talked up the prospects of a follow-up to 1994’s polarising ‘The Second Coming‘, and other sporadic reports in the media kept the gossip flowing as Brown and bandmate John Squire‘s apparent new music was at one point described as ‘psychedelic pop’. Since then however, the stories have gone cold.

Our fingers are now crossed once again though.
