well you're going to have to wait
very misleading thread title

I read yesterday that they were releasing a 7" single for RSD (Record Store Day) and the story you linked confirms the same .... there is no mention of a new full length release

Yeah, all I saw was about the 7", too. Still awesome, but if there is indeed an album on the way, that could be even more exciting.

Johnson has been working on a new The The album for well over a year. Keeps getting delayed for one reason or another. I'm trying to find the online I article I read where he announced he was working on it.

Edit: Here's one of the articles. Vague, I know. http://www.music-news.com/news/UK/87783/Read

I cannot wait. One of the most underrated bands of the rock era. Infected is my personal favorite record of theirs.

I believe Johnson has mostly been doing soundtrack work over the last few decades. I hope this new album is worth the wait.

Nice to see other fans of The The. I have been a huge fan since Soul Mining and think that Infected is the best album of the 80s and Mind Bomb was a superb follow up album. Nice to see Johnny Marr joining in again after so long.

Matt Johnson is extremely underrated and overlooked. Looking forward to this.

I'm glad to hear he's working on new music, especially with Johnny Marr. I love all of his work, but "Mindbomb" and "Dusk" were head and shoulders above the rest of his catalog. He assembled a great group of musicians for those.

I still think that he has never done a better album than Infected. One of those rare albums where skipping tracks is not necessary.

Infected is a really incredible work, but Soul Mining, Mind Bomb, and Dusk are just as essential.
