British rocker Ian Brown has unveiled an unlikely collaborator on his forthcoming solo album - Irish singer SINEAD O'CONNOR. The pair have formed a firm friendship and are working together on a track for the former Stone Roses star's next LP. The disc will be a massive departure from Brown's more familiar indie sound. As well as the duet with O'Connor he has already revealed he's enlisted the help of an orchestra. Brown recently said, "I recorded with a 30-piece orchestra last week. It's going to sound amazing."
