Welcome to Monday folks, what is usually the most grim instalment of your working week. Today, however, is different. Today you get to listen to the first new music from The Jesus and Mary Chain in almost two decades, because Damage and Joy has hit the airwaves.
In the time it took The Jesus and Mary Chain to release Damage and Joy, you could have raised a child to drinking age. Yeah, we’re pretty excited.
Spotify users can listen to the album below. Initial reviews have been mixed, some praising it as a reinvention of their iconic, creative monstrosity Psychocandy, while doubters walk a similar line, instead saying it doesn’t hold up for the same reasons.
You’ll just have to decide for yourself.
