Will the Kids Pay For a New Stone Roses Song?


It is a noble thing to try and release new music these days:
First it was Noel Gallagher, who in October 2015 told Soccer AM that The Stone Roses were "blooming". Then it was the Roses themselves, who put up a load of posters, containing 16 lemons each, all over Manchester, to tease their live return in 2016. And now, Guardian journalist Ben Green has sparked a wave of new speculation by tweeting the since-deleted cryptic message "SR040316". Not cryptic enough, apparently. Fans writing on dontstopforum.co.uk have since twigged that this could mean an announcement – or even a new release – from the Manchester band on Friday, March 4.
Could it be an album? An EP? Could it be a load of new shows? Could it be a festival date? Twitter seems to think it’s an EP, mainly because the EP rumours have been knocking about for a few days now...
I would settle for a live album if there is no new music. But, come on--we've been waiting for years. Someone's gotta know something...
