Everyone’s favourite monkey man is back with his latest track ‘First World Problems’. It is a tune, by the way.
He has now unveiled the official music video for the single, taken from his next album Ripples. It is Ian Brown’s first solo work in nine years
In the music video, Ian Brown is listening to ‘F.E.A.R’ on his bike while the legend’s latest track is playing. Similar to his upcoming album, which Brown wrote and produced himself, the music video was also directed by Brown and was shot around Greater Manchester. It also includes three songs which were co-written with his sons, alongside covers of Barrington Levy’s ‘Black Roses’ and ‘Break Down The Walls’ by Mikey Dread.
Just like The Stone Roses’ comeback, Brown released posters prior to the single release, that were spotted a week before in Liverpool. It follows The Stone Roses’ gig, when they played Glasgow and finished the set, saying: “Don’t be sad it’s over, be happy that it happened.”
The full track list for Brown’s upcoming album is below:
‘First World Problems’
‘Breathe And Breathe Easy (The Everness Of Now)’
‘The Dream And The Dreamer’
‘From Chaos To Harmony’
‘It’s Raining Diamonds’
‘Blue Sky Day’
‘Break Down The Walls (Warm Up Jam)’
