Ian Brown and The Cribs' Johnny Marr are set to work on a TV soundtrack album, The Stone Roses' former singer has revealed.

Brown told BBC News that the Mancunians were going to collaborate to create the music for a show being written by a mutual friend of theirs. He said he'd like to enlist his former Stone Roses bassist bandmate Mani plus Happy Mondays' Paul Ryder to help out too.

"The idea is that Johnny writes the music and I write the words and the melodies," he explained. "We've got a mutual friend who's writing a drama series. One of them's about ticket touts, another one's about grafters – kids who sell T-shirts and things like that – and another one's about pickpockets.

"We're going to get together and do the soundtrack for these dramas. We'd have to bring a drummer or a bass player in."

Last night (September 28) Ian Brown played a gig at the London Relentless Garage, during which he covered The Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love'.
