For his sixth solo LP, former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown will pay tribute to Michael Jackson. However, not in the way you may think.
“Thriller was our blueprint,” Brown explained in a recent interview with NME. “Every time we wrote a song we didn’t think was strong enough, we scrapped it. We mastered it on the day that Michael Jackson died too, so I’m taking that as a good omen.”
Yes, folks, unlike every other Jackson inspired album that will surely hit music shelves in the coming months, My Way was actually inspired prior to the King of Pop’s death.
The effort, which will serve as the followup to 2007’s The World Is Yours, will be released on September 28th. It will be headed by single #1, “Stellify”, a week prior. It will be supported by a yet-to-be-announced tour — as of now, the only upcoming dates for Brown are appearances at Reading and Leeds.
Finally, it will hopefully bring about some new posters… so Brown’s kids can do some more selling on eBay.
