It looks like Ian Brown is teasing his return. Posters advertising a single release have cropped up all over Brown’s hometown of Manchester, images for ‘First World Problems’ have been seen across the city.
In a similar vein, The Stone Roses plastered their iconic ‘Lemon Posters’ all across the city back in 2016 just before they returned with new tunes and a stint of tour dates. Brown hasn’t dropped a solo record since ‘My Way’ in 2009‘.

Last summer, rumours began to spread that the Manchester legends’ show in Glasgow would be their last. That was before comments made by Brown during the show seemed to confirm that the band had come to an end once again.
As the gig at Hampden Park ended, Brown said to the crowd: “Don’t be sad it’s over, be happy that it happened.”
