The newly reformed Happy Mondays have revealed they've begun recording a new album, according to NME.

The original line-up of Shaun Ryder, Paul Ryder, Gaz Whelan, Mark Day & Paul Davis as well as Rowetta Satchell are all working on material for the new LP.

The band's manager broke the news, he said:

"Yes, we are now planning to record a new album, after the success of the tour and with the band all getting on so well. Shaun has been writing and the band have been getting together in the studio putting ideas down. I'm sure it will be a great Happy Mondays album."

Whilst frontman Shaun Ryder told the Daily Star: "At first there was no chance of the original line-up doing another album and then it went to maybe and now it's definitely gonna happen." Now it transpires that work has already begun."

The band have released five albums in total since their inception, 'Squirrel And G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out)', 'Bummed' and 'Pills 'N' Thrills And Bellyaches' before disbanding in 1992 after releasing 'Yes Please!'
