The Verve have premiered a previously unreleased song, which dates back to the sessions for the band’s classic debut album ‘A Storm In Heaven’.
‘Shoeshine Girl’, which can exclusively be heard via NME below, was recorded during the sessions for the 1993 album. It wasn’t released on ‘A Storm In Heaven’ or its accompanying singles and has remained unheard for the past 23 years.
Along with ‘South Pacific’, it’s one of two unreleased tracks to feature on a newly expanded 3CD box-set of the album, which is reissued on September 9.
It would be the height of foolishness not to reunite and promote the 20th anniversary of Urban Hymns next year, wouldn't it?
