My Way pencilled for September release

Former Stone Roses singer Ian Brown has claimed his new record My Way, which will be released on September 28, was inspired by later pop icon Michael Jackson.

Brown said: "Thriller was our blueprint. Every time we wrote a song we didn't think was strong enough, we scrapped it. We mastered it on the day that Michael Jackson died too, so I'm taking that as a good omen."

The album will be preceded by the release of a single, 'Stellify', on September 21.
