Ian Brown promises solo album for 2009

    In his Christmas greetings message, Ian Brown tells fans he’s working on the follow-up to 2007’s The World Is Yours, which he hopes to release in August 2009.


    He writes, "I’m happy to let you know I’m working up a set of songs that are the best on all levels I’ve been involved with – ooh baby the music gets better with you! I’m looking to release these songs as an album in August. More news soon."


    For the time being Brown is keeping schtum on whether this "more news" has anything to do with Mani convincing him to reform the Stone Roses. [Angryape]
