The Stone Roses have released the second single of their comeback.

Following on from May’s unveiling of All For One – the band’s first new music in 21 years – they’ve issued another track, called Beautiful Thing.

The song can be heard below and is available for digital download now via Virgin EMI, with a limited edition 12-inch vinyl version also on offer. The vinyl version is limited to 5000 worldwide and will ship on July 22.

Frontman Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, drummer Alan ‘Reni’ Wren and bassist Gary ‘Mani’ Mounfield announced the release of Beautiful Thing last night.
