Pirate rocker Adam Ant has added a tribute to his former manager Malcolm McLaren on his comeback album.
The Stand & Deliver hitmaker has confirmed reports he's working on his first album in 15 years, and he's dedicating one new song to ex-Adam & The Ants svengali MCLaren, who lost his battle with cancer earlier this month (Apr10).
Ant, real name Stuart Goddard, tells NME.com that the track Who's a Goofy Bunny Then? was written with "surrogate father" MCLaren in mind almost 30 years ago - and the music mogul's passing prompted him to rework the tune.
The song will appear on Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar in Marrying The Gunner's Daughter, which features collaborations with former 3 Colours Red guitarist Chris MCCormack, Marco Pirroni and "a member of Oasis".
