Public Image Ltd To Release First New Album in 20 Years
The album is self-funded by PiL and will be released on PiL's own label 'PiL Official' via Cargo UK Distribution. All the new material was recorded in the UK last year at Steve Winwood's studio in the Cotswolds.
The album is preceded by the release of a 4-track EP entitled 'One Drop.' It will be issued for 'Record Store Day' on April 21. The EP is comprised of 4 songs—"One Drop," "I Must Be Dreaming," "The Room I Am In" and "Lollipop Opera"—that will also be available on THIS IS PiL.
John Lydon talks about This Is PiL: "Well, 12 songs, where do I begin? Everything and anything that attracts my attention. 'One Drop' is about my early youth in Finsbury Park. Fantastic! Hello, we're all teenagers don't you forget it! At any age, stay young. 'Lollipop Opera' is basically a beautiful bunch of background noise and music to sum up Britain and all its wonderful ambidextrousness! 'The Room I Am In' well that's about drugs and council flats. And there's a tragedy that still continues. 'I Must Be Dreaming' well, you know, I must be to put up with these governments."
