It’s been an incredible year for alternative rock reunions, and it looks like that trend is going to carry over into 2015. Twenty-two years after the Juliana Hatfield Three released their influential 1993 LP Become What Your Are, the trio will finally follow up their debut with their long-awaited sophomore album, Whatever, My Love, on February 17th. Singer/guitarist Hatfield, drummer Todd Philips and bassist Dean Fisher also shared the album’s first single, the jangly and nostalgic “If I Could.”

While Hatfield remained prolific in the years following Become What You Are, that album – with its 120 Minutes smashes “My Sister” and “Spin the Bottle” – marked the only time the trio of Hatfield, Fisher and Philips would record together; only Fisher joined Hatfield on her 1995 solo album Only Everything – his last record with the singer – while Philips contributed drums to Hatfield’s 1998 disc Bed and 2000’s Beautiful Creature.

The Three recorded their 12-song new album at Hoboken, New Jersey’s Nuthouse Recording with Hatfield and Tom Beaujour co-producing. “We haven’t totally reinvented the wheel or anything,” Hatfield said of Whatever, My Love in a statement. “But I am a lot more confident now than I was with the first album…” Whatever, My Love is available for pre-order in various bundle packages at the American Laundromat Records site. The reformed band will embark on a North American tour starting in February.

The Juliana Hatfield Three joins a remarkable list of alt-rockers who have reunited in the past year, including Sleater-Kinney, Failure, Ride, Faith No More, Veruca Salt, Slowdive, Luna and, for two nights at least, Temple of the Dog.
