Electric guitar player Johnny Marr is to record an album with fellow Manchester musician Ian Brown.

Marr made his name playing a Rickenbacker guitar with Morrissey in The Smiths, notching up hits such as Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now and This Charming Man, while Brown rose to prominence as vocalist in the Stone Roses.

Speaking to BBC News, Brown said the new music will be a soundtrack to a drama series that is being written by a mutual friend.

He revealed that they are currently looking at getting Mani, the former Stone Roses bass guitar player, to join them in the recording studio.

Paul Ryder, bass player with Mancunian band the Happy Mondays, is also being considered as a possible option.

Brown, who has consistently ruled out the possibility of reuniting the Stone Roses, recently released a new solo album, while Marr has become a member of indie band The Cribs.
