The Jesus and Mary Chain begin work on first album in 17 years

Jesus and Mary Chain

Ever since reuniting in 2007, The Jesus and Mary Chain have entertained the idea of a new studio album. Now, eight years, later, the band has finally entered the studio.

In an interview with Time Out New York, singer Jim Reid revealed that work has begun on the long-awaited follow-up to 1998’s Munki. “We actually just started recording. It’s early days, but I would say it’s a more mature sound for the Mary Chain. But let’s just wait and see.”

As we wait for more, revisit our recent interview with Reid in which he discusses the 30th anniversary of Psychocandy, sobriety, and Lou Reed, among many other topics. Below, revisit the band’s video for “Just Like Honey”.
