Happy Mondays' new album is "sounding brilliant", according to the band's vocalist Rowetta.

Speaking to NME, the former X Factor contestant – who first appeared on the 1990 single 'Step On' and recently reunited with the band's original line-up – said that frontman said that frontman Shaun Ryder and the rest of the group were sounding better than ever on the new LP.

Rowetta says:

It's sounding brilliant. Shaun's lyrics are great and everybody's playing better than before because we've all got clearer heads. We're going to get different producers on board I believe, so it will all change. We used to have the producer first then start writing," she added. "This time we're all bringing new ideas, we're all writing, it's great.



The singer also revealed some of the possible names for the album, stating: "The working titles include 'Designer Vagina', 'Lollipop Man', 'Mumbo Jumbo'. I go in three or four days a week and there's always different people there. It's amazing because we've not done it together for 20 years. I've got it all on my phone, but I'm not playing it for no-one!"

In July of this year, the band confirmed they were working on a new LP, which will be the first time all the original line-up have recorded a record of new material since 1992's 'Yes Please!'.

The band's manager Warren Askew told NME: "Yes, we are now planning to record a new album, after the success of the tour and with the band all getting on so well. Shaun has been writing and the band have been getting together in the studio putting ideas down. I'm sure it will be a great Happy Mondays album."

Happy Mondays will play two back to back shows in London this December, with back-to-back dates at the Camden Roundhouse on December 19 and 20. To check the availability of Happy Mondays tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
