The Stones Roses Release First Song In 20 Years And Its Very Ordinary

The Stone Roses released ‘All For One’, their first new song in over 20 years today and it gobsmacking ordinary.

The song appeared after a Twitter post earlier today.

‘All For One’ features all the right parts in play with Ian Brown on vocals, John Squire on guitar, Mani on bass and Reni on drums but it just sounds like average Britpop instead of the innovative indie rock The Stone Roses delivered last on the 1994 album ‘Second Coming’.

On ‘All For One’ the band seem to be channelling George Harrison’s ‘I Want To Tell You’ from The Beatles ‘Revolver’ album.

The Stone Roses have only had two albums ‘The Stone Roses’ in 1989 then ‘Second Coming’ in 1994.

‘Fool’s Gold’ reached no 13 in Australia and no 8 in the UK.

The Stone Roses started to explode when John Squire left in April 1996. Brown and Mani dissolved the band in October 1996.

They stayed apart for the next 15 years when in 2011 reports of a reunion surfaced, then in 2012 dates were announced. The Stone Roses performed at Caochella in 2013 and also played The Future Music Festival along with their own shows in Australia as well that year.

The Stone Roses new song is pleasing fans that they are back but equally disappointing them that it does not live up to their previous standards.
