Public Image Ltd. Announce New Album, Tour

Fans mourning their lost chance to see John Lydon in Johnny Rotten’s canceled Jesus Christ Superstar, take heart: the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd. frontman has announced that the latter will release their tenth studio LP this fall. What the World Needs Now…, the follow-up to 2012’s This is PiL (both of which were recorded at Steve Winwood’s Wincraft Studios), arrives September 4 and will be followed by a U.K., European, and North American tour. The first single, “Double Trouble,” arrives August 21 as a ten-inch vinyl single backed by “Bettie Page” and non-album extra “Turkey Tits.”
