‘These People‘ is the first new album in six years from the Brit and Ivor Novello award winning, Grammy nominated and multi-platinum selling artist Richard Ashcroft. Recorded in London, it was produced by Richard and longtime collaborator Chris Potter, as well as marking a reunion with Will Malone, who worked with Richard on the string arrangements on the seminal albums by The Verve A Northern Soul (1995), Urban Hymns (1997), and his platinum-selling and critically acclaimed debut solo album Alone with Everybody (2000). It equally channels his classic output and explores new sounds, textures and themes, graced by one of the most singular and unforgettable voices in British music.
Following the announcement of his new album ‘These People’ yesterday, Richard Ashcroft has announced two exclusive UK live dates in May in support of the album:
14th May – Albert Hall, Manchester
16th May – Roundhouse, London
Tickets will go on sale 9am Friday, Feb 26th via http://richardashcroft.com/ and general outlets.
