Stereophonics are planning to release a new album to mark their 20th anniversary.

Frontman Kelly Jones has revealed the group are just putting the finishing touches on the studio collection, which follows the band's 2015 'Keep the Village Alive', and it'll be ready to drop next summer to mark the momentous year.

He said: ''We've pretty much finished the 10th album. We'll start mixing it on September 6, when the tour's finished. I'd like to bring it out next summer or springtime if possible.''

And the 42-year-old singer is adamant their collection will be like any other band - who tend to regurgitate their hits for anniversary victory laps.

Speaking to Virgin Radio about their plans to mark the 20 years since their debut LP 'Word Gets Around' was released, he explained: ''I wouldn't want to do that with a bunch of memorabilia and B-sides. I want to keep the band moving forward.''

Stereophonics made their first appearance in the music world with 'Word Gets Around' but it was their second album 'Performance and Cocktails' in 1999 that catapulted them into the limelight with their singles 'The Bartender and the Thief', 'Pick a Part That's New' and 'Just Looking'.
