Not only are the long-dormant Britpop pioneers the Stone Roses scheduled to play a batch of shows this year, the rumors about a new album are true.

Frontman Ian Brown told NME that the band have indeed been recording new songs at the Church Studios in London, declaring that the music sounds "glorious" so far. Watch the video below. The album is expected to arrive around June in time for the Roses' reunion gigs, but that's still unconfirmed.

The Stone Roses formed in Manchester in 1983 and called it quits in 1996 after releasing just two albums. Fans got their hopes up for a successor to 1994's Second Coming when the band reunited for a handful of shows in 2012, but no new music ever materialized.
