Stone Roses’ New Song ‘All for One’ Makes Concert Debut, Band Promises More Music
The group performed at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax, West Yorkshire on June 7, ending a three-year live hiatus by playing a warm-up gig before a crowd of roughly 1,500 fans. "All for One," which marks the first new Stone Roses music in more than two decades, received its first concert outing as part of a 16-song setlist that opened with "I Wanna Be Adored" and closed with "I Am the Resurrection." You can check out fan footage of their "All for One" performance below.
The NME approached singer Ian Brown outside a London recording studio before "All for One" was released, and he described the group's new music as "glorious" — sentiments reportedly echoed by drummer Reni, who's been quoted by a fan as confirming there was more new Stone Roses material completed, and that it "sounds beautiful."
Although the band has toured fairly regularly since reuniting in 2011 after a 15-year layoff, their official discography has remained stuck at two records — 1989's widely hailed The Stone Roses and 1994's Second Coming — as years of rumors regarding new music have persistently failed to pan out. Whether or not "All for One" actually leads to more material, the group's keeping busy on stage: following a second warm-up show scheduled for June 8, they're booked for a four-night residency at Manchester Etihad Stadium on June 15, 17, 18 and 19.
