An uncanny likeness...
Ian Brown has visited the creepy Zoltar-puppet featured in his latest music video, ‘From Chaos To Harmony’. Check out the images below.
The track is taken from Brown’s recent solo album ‘Ripples’, which arrived in February and marked his first solo LP in a decade.
Its official seaside-set visuals – directed by John Nolan – were inspired by the fortune-telling machine from the movie Big. In the clip, we see a magical string of events unfold after a young boy encounters a puppet that has been crafted in the shape of Brown.
With the supernatural head now on display for fans to visit at Manchester’s Piccadilly Records, Brown himself has taken it upon himself to check out the machine made in his image.
A post on fan site Stone Roses Daily shows the singer posing in front of the installation at the Oldham Street record shop. Brown is said to have been in attendance yesterday (April 27).
The former Roses frontman is a frequent visitor to the shop and performed an in-store session there in February to celebrate the release of his comeback record.
In a review of ‘Ripples‘, NME said: “The 55-year-old’s singing has noticeably improved. On the acoustic busker tune ‘Breathe And Breathe Easy’, his voice sounds stronger than ever: a steely Mancunian bellow that also harks to Lennon’s vocal runs.
