Singer songwriter Richard Ashcroft is about to return with his fourth solo album, These People. The album will be released on Ashcroft’s new Righteous Phonographic Association label via Cooking Vinyl Records on 20th May.
The first single, “This Is How It Feels”, will be given as an instant download when you pre-order the album. You may also for purchase the single separately and it will also be available for streaming on digital outlets.
This will be Ashcroft’s first new album in six years. These People was recorded in London with producer Chris Potter at the producer’s helm with Ashcroft. The album has also reunited Wil Malone with Ashcroft; he is the man behind the string arrangements on the seminal albums by The Verve A Northern Soul (1995), Urban Hymns (1997), and Ashcroft’s platinum-selling and critically acclaimed debut solo album Alone with Everybody (2000).
The album has the classic Ashcroft sound, but this album sees him opening the door to new sounds, textures and themes. These People puts one of the UK’s best singer/ songwriters right back where he belongs, front and center as one of the best in British music.
