But today (October 23), following a social media storm, it was found covered with a poster advertising an 80’s concert for this weekend at Echo Arena.
It seems Bonnie Tyler and the Stepback 80s gang have had this poster put up Faster Than The Speed Of Night and covered Brownie’s… pic.twitter.com/W05ZoZW4S3

The news has seen many people claim the single will be released this coming Friday (October 26), while Twitter user @iclepickle posted in reference to the cover itself: “Monkey sitting on a horse reads as “Ma Sheung Fung Hao” in Chinese which is similar to “PROMOTION IS FAST APPROACHING”
Unconfirmed reports suggest the new album will contain a duet with the singer’s son while an inside source told Getintothis that the album is expected in March 2019. It would be Brown‘s first since 2009’s My Way.
As a solo artist Brown has previously been spotted working out of Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios.
