This 1960s Group Is Making A Comeback With Brand New Music!

Published

on

The Monkees are an iconic music group that featured the late Davey Jones. The band got its start as the center of a 1960s television comady series which centered around the crazy misadventures of the band.

Now, two members of the legendary group are reviving The Monkees with a new album set to release in May. And we have the first single from the album for you to hear!

As Rolling Stone reports – Good Times! (in stores May 27th) celebrates the group’s 50th anniversary as a recording unit, and it features songs by Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and XTC’s Andy Partridge, as well as Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller. There are also tunes written by Neil Diamond and Carole King in the 1960s that the group never got around to releasing. The album was produced by Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne.

The Monkees reformed with original guitarist Mike Nesmith in 2012, shortly after the sudden death of Davy Jones. Nesmith played a series of critically acclaimed tours with surviving members Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork through 2014, but this summer they are hitting the road without him. Nesmith did contribute a tune to Good Times! (“I Know What I Know”), and he plays guitar and sings on several tracks on the album.

You can pre-order the album now at Monkees.com
