Shaun Ryder told NME last year that Happy Mondays are working on an album, “going to do a Happy Mondays album first, but we’ve put the brakes on that until next year, as there’s been record label politics.”

He continued: “Plus, there’s six people in the Mondays who’ve all got an equal say and we’ve been arguing for 30 years about who’s the boss. It just takes longer to get done.

“While all that’s going on with the Mondays, me and Kermit are doing a Black Grape album. We’re keeping it close to our chests as to how it sounds, but me and Kermit still flow. We’ve still got that energy we did back in the day. There’s only two of us, not six, so it’s not too strenuous to make a Black Grape album.”
