Solarized

Solarized is the fourth solo album released by Ian Brown, the former lead singer of The Stone Roses. The album was first released in the United Kingdom on 13 September 2004.

Background

The album was the first album release on the revived Polydor imprint Fiction Records.

Canadian and Australian releases did not feature "Happy Ever After". The North American edition of Solarized contains an exclusive U.S. bonus track called "Lovebug".

The song "Happy Ever After" was used in an episode of Top Gear during the review of the 2007 Jaguar XK. It has also been used in the series Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and for the adverts of Law & Order: UK.

Unlike his previous, and subsequent albums, Solarized was not originally released on vinyl, but in April 2016, it was finally released on a limited run of 2000 vinyl copies as part of Record Store Day.
