Richard Ashcroft Returns! Exploding back into the public's consciousness Ashcroft re-enters the fray. His new album 'These People' is set for release and us people are getting very excited.
Richard (former lead singer of seminal band The Verve) has released a number of solo records since moving on from the first Verve period and then in 2006-7 he got back with former Verve band members in to tour and ultimately record the album 'Forth' (Dean went on tour with the band at this time). The unity of the band was short lived and the members chose to go their separate ways exploring their own directions.
'These People' is going to be a very significant album and it is great to have one of musics most outspoken, intelligent and compelling artists back stirring it up and shaking it down. The first single from the album is 'This Is How It Feels' is now out now.
