Rock star Ian Brown has released a coronavirus-related song reiterating his anti-lockdown stance.

It comes after a series of posts from the ex-Stone Roses frontman this month which have opposed the response to the pandemic.

His initial tweet read: "NO LOCKDOWN NO TESTS NO TRACKS NO MASKS NO VAX. #researchanddestroy."

Then three days later he the added: "To all of you asking about my medical qualifications I have the same as the computer seller bill gates ( biggest funder of the world health organisation)."

Brown’s former Stone Roses bandmate John Squire then came out to urge people to wear masks, but the singer has now posted another anti-mask message.

He said: "NOBODY IS NO F****R TO TELL YOU TO WEAR A MASK."

And along with the tweet, the 57-year-old has also released a new song which appears to attack the reaction to the coronavirus.

The lyrics in the song read: "A sonic lockdown in your home town. A sonic lockdown, can you feel me now?

"A sonic lockdown, state shakedown, a mass breakdown / Put your muzzle on, get back in your basket.

"Get behind your doors cos living here is drastic."
