The Verve are back.

This is a newer song that is growing on me. I like it more each time I hear it. Love is Noise (not to be confused with Suzanne Vega's Blood makes Noise).

The Verve formed in 1989, had a hit with Bittersweet Symphony.

Interestingly, the Rolling Stones' Jagger and Richards received writing credits for it since it uses a foundation of their song, The Last Time.

The Verve broke up in 1999 and reformed in 2007.

The bottom video displays the addictive melodies of Bittersweet Symphony (definitely worth a listen.) Bittersweet might sound familiar, it was used in several commercials, including NIKE.

This is their newest, soon coming out on CD.

The Verve (originally Verve) are an English rock band formed in Wigan, Greater Manchester in 1989 at Winstanley Sixth Form College, by vocalist Richard Ashcroft, guitarist Nick McCabe, bassist Simon Jones, and drummer Peter Salisbury. Simon Tong later became a member.

The Verve: Bittersweet Symphony. (1997)

Although the song's lyrics were written by Verve vocalist Richard Ashcroft, it has been credited to Keith Richards and Mick Jagger because the song uses the Andrew Oldham Orchestra recording of The Rolling Stones' 1965 song "The Last Time" as its foundation.
