What we know:
The iconic Stone Roses frontman produced Ripples as well as writing the majority of the tracks on the album.
Three of the songs were co-written with his sons, who also play various instruments across the upcoming release.
Ian Brown has retained complete creative control of the project – producing the album, directing the video – which is set for release shortly – as well as creating the artwork himself and playing guitar, drums and a host of other instruments throughout the record.
The album also features covers of Barrington Levy’s Black Roses and Mikey Dread’s Break Down The Walls.
The album was recorded in Liverpool and enhanced in the Beatles room at Abbey Road Studios, before being mixed by long-term collaborator Steve Fitzmaurice. The record was digitally mastered by Bob Ludwig in New York, while the vinyl was mastered by Chris Bellman in LA.
