Former Stone Roses member John Squire has confirmed he will release another solo album in the New Year. ‘Marshall’s House’ will be released on 9 Feb, with single ‘Room In Brooklyn’ out the previous week. Apparently each track on the album was inspired by a different painting from American realist
Edward Hopper.

Squire explains: “Hopper painted American scenes and American people – usually quite solitary and depressed-looking individuals. The reason I wanted to write about them was that I find them all quite haunting – superficially light, and awkward and ordinary, but there was something disturbing about some of the characters. So each of the songs is an extrapolated story around those images.”

    I guess I’m a heretic (at least to indie fans) for preferring the more hard rock based “Second Coming” to the jangly first album.

    I’d love to hear “Tears” sung by someone like David Coverdale.
