The Verve has christened its reunion album "Four" and will release it before the end of the summer.
The set is due out on Aug. 19, the album's first single, "Love Is Noise," was premiered on BBC Radio One earlier this week, and is available to hear below.
This is a very special band, with four incredibly talented people," the Verve's manager Jaz Summers said in February. "They made three great albums before. And they're going to make another great album now. There's a bit of magic when the four of them come together."
The Verve got back together in 2007 following a nine-year hiatus. The band's last album was 1997's "Urban Hymns," which launched the U.K. combo to worldwide stardom on the strength of the single "Bittersweet Symphony." Since then, frontman Richard Ashcroft has recorded three solo albums.
The Verve has a dozen summer festival dates on tap, including a co-headlining slot at Glastonbury later this month. - Alternative Addiction
"Love Is Noise" sounds good, but it is no "Bittersweet Symphony."
