The Stone Roses

Second Coming: Vinyl LP


Release date: 2 December, 2013

Second Coming is the second studio album by the much beloved Mancunian indie-rock band The Stone Roses, released through Geffen Records on 5th December 1994 in the UK and in early 1995 in the US. It was recorded at Forge Studios in Oswestry, Shropshire, and Rockfield Studios near Monmouth in Wales between 1992 and 1994. The album went platinum in the UK and sold 1 million copies worldwide.Second Coming features tribal rhythms, 1970s-style extended guitar riffs, funky rock/blues workouts with jazz elements and campfire style songs such as "Your Star Will Shine" and "Tightrope" that hint at the band's rural surroundings at the time.

As the line-up began to crumble, three singles – "Love Spreads", "Ten Storey Love Song", and "Begging You" – from the album were released in the UK. Second Coming was dedicated to Philip Hall, the band's publicist, who died of cancer in 1993.
