Stream The New Verve

It's been eleven years, some solo albums, and a fair amount of touring, but The Verve have finally gotten together a follow up to 1997's Urban Hymns. Forth (very clever guys, very.) drops next Tuesday on August 26th, but you can stream it now (one week only!) on the band's myspace page.

The disc (of course) is heavily driven by Richard Ashcroft's distinctive rough crooner vibe, but also seems to derive a bit more from guitar atmospherics than Urban Hymns did. The effect is quite striking, and thankfully, a bit less morose than Hymns. But don't take our word for it...
