Brown releases his third solo album in the UK on September 10.
Now, speaking in an interview in the current issue of Q magazine, the star claimed that he wanted the record to be a return to the “classic style” which characterised the first eponymous Stone Roses album, released in 1989.
He said: “I wanted to make this record in the classic style, if I could. The idea of having ten songs, proper songs, you know? Good lyrics, good melodies. (New single) ‘FEAR’ has a similar beat to ‘I Wanna Be Adored’ and (album track) ‘Shadow Of A Saint’ at the end is kind of like ‘I Am The Resurrection’, the big build up at the end. It’s loosely based on the first Stone Roses LP, but I set out to better it.”
