After more than two decades of waiting, The Stone Roses have finally dropped new music.

The song, titled "All for One" and produced by hotshot producer Paul Epworth, is the first song to be taken from their hotly anticipated third record and debuted on the airwaves shortly before 8pm on Thursday evening (12 May).

Fans' appetites were whet last year when the Ian Brown-fronted band - who launched onto the scene with their self-titled debut in 1989 - announced a string of Manchester stadium dates.

Rumours of a new album - their first since 1994's follow-up Second Coming - swelled earlier this year when Brown confirmed that they were in the studio making 'glorious' new music.

This week, posters of the band's famous lemon logo - which adorned the cover of their first album - cropped up across the world corroborating talk of their 'imminent' third record.

Alongside Brown, The Stone Roses are comprised of guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani and bucket hat-wearing drummer Reni.

Originally formed in 1983, the band broke through with their seminal debut in 1989. They eventually disbanded in 1996 before reuniting for a world tour in 2011 - including three homecoming shows in Manchester's Heaton Park.

The band will headline this year's T in the park festival as well as a gig at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Here's our first-listen review of the new track.
