My Way is the sixth solo album by British artist Ian Brown. The album was released on 28 September 2009.[10] The album's lead single "Stellify" was released on 21 September 2009. In an interview with XFM Manchester he claimed that the song was originally written for Rihanna, but he realised he had created "a great sound" so claimed the track for himself.[11]

The second single "Just Like You" was released on 30 November 2009

Recording[edit]

My Way was inspired by Michael Jackson's Thriller with Brown noting that "we mastered it on the day that Michael Jackson died (too), so I'm taking that as a good omen."[10]
