Following their reunion in 2009 Public image Ltd are now ready to release their first new album since 1992.

Talking to BBC 6 Music, Lydon said he has been waiting for quite a while to release new material.

“I was always full of ideas, but I had to wait until I had enough money to release an album.

"Everybody thinks I made such a fortune with the Sex Pistols," he explained. 

"Well, unfortunately that is not true, to make this record we had to tour extensively for two years."

Lydon went on to say when they got back together in 2009 the band instantly knew sooner or later they had to put out new material.

He described the album as quite emotional, with the twelve songs about the ups and downs of the lives of four human beings.

It is due out early spring and the record will be followed by a UK and European tour, John Lydon even revealed the title of the new album.

"It is probably going to be called 'This is PiL'  basically because it is, it is all the work, effort and energy we put into this record."
