John Lydon Reveals Details About New PiL Album
John Lydon has revealed that the title of the new Public Image Ltd album will likely be, simply, "This Is PiL". Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Lydon said lack of financing has been the main hindrance in releasing new PiL material. "I was always full of ideas, but I had to wait until I had enough money to release an album," Lydon explained. "Everybody thinks I made such a fortune with the Sex Pistols. Well, unfortunately that is not true. To make this record we had to tour extensively for two years." Lydon added that he and his PiL bandmates knew, as soon as the reconvened in 2009, that they would eventually record a new album. He characterized the songs on the new disc as "emotional", and said the title reflects "all the work, effort and energy we put into this record." PiL's last studio album was 1992's "That What Is Not". The new album is tentatively slated for release in the spring of 2012. Thanks for the report to Russell Hall,
