Public Image Limited Announce New Album, Reveal First Song

(Classic Rock) Public Image Limited have announced their 10th album will be released in March and have made the lead single available to stream. John Lydon and co will issue What The World Needs Now… on September 4 via the band's own label PiL Official. The single, Double Trouble, will be released on August 21.

According to Lydon, the album opener arose from an argument with his wife about plumbing, but came to concern relationships. The 10inch vinyl version will be backed by b-side Bettie Page, which, John says is "an homage to the late Queen of the Pin-Ups", and also comes with additional non-album bonus track Turkey Tits.

The artwork for Double Trouble, partly inspired by Native American Hopi characters, was designed and hand drawn by Lydon himself. What The World Needs Now… follows 2012's This is PiL - the band's first album in 17 years. The record, which can be pre-ordered now, is released ahead of a 23-date European tour, which kicks off in Glasgow on September 18. Read more and listen to the first single here.
