The The released a limited edition 7" single for Record Store Day titled "We Can't Stop What's Coming." The single sold out immediately, leaving many fans desperate to get their hands on a copy, but now a second pressing of the single has been released. V2 is pressed on Old English White vinyl and does not have etchings on the flip side (to preserve the collector value of the original limited RSD release). The single is available to purchase here. Fifty percent of the profits from website sales of V2 will be donated to St Nicholas Hospice Suffolk, the hospice center that cared for Matt Johnson's brother Andrew in his final days.

"We Can't Stop What's Coming" was recorded live during Johnson's Radio Cineola broadcast last May (May 2016), as a tribute to Andrew, who passed away in January of last year. The single includes ex-The The members (including Johnny Marr) and the cover art for the single features drawings found in Andrew's sketchbook. 

"We Can't Stop What's Coming" is also featured in the new The The documentary The Inertia Variations and is slated to be released as part of a larger multi-media project Johnson is working on. A digital version of the track can be purchased on iTunes.

Watch the official video for "We Can't Stop What's Coming," which features footage of Andrew (as well as Matt) Johnson and serves as a beautiful and heartfelt tribute.



"We Can't Stop What's Coming" is the third song Johnson has written for a family member. "Love Is Stronger Than Death" was written for Johnson's brother Eugene, and "Phantom Walls" was written as a tribute to his mother.
