Ian Brown to work with Islamic pop star

By Will Astbury

MANCHESTER  legend Ian Brown has announced he will be working with an Islamic pop sensation.

The former Stone Roses frontman, who is just about to release his sixth studio album ‘My Way’, is famous for his collaborations and has announced he is planning to work with Sami Yusuf.

“I’ve just written some songs for a Muslim singer called Sami Yusuf, who’s an Islamic singer who sings in Arabic and he’s really big in the Middle East,” Brown told the Londonderry Sentinel.

 “He wants to write an album in English, so he’s written the music and the melodies and I’ve just got to do the lyrics. I’m always happy to collaborate,” added Brown.

 Iranian-born Yusuf has been billed by The Guardian as “the most famous British Muslim in the world” and was called “Islam’s biggest rock star” by Time Magazine.

 He was brought-up in London and attended the Royal Academy of Music.
