Richard Ashcroft has announced a performance at Manchester’s Albert Hall to support the release of his new album, These People, his first release in six years.
‘These People’, the fourth solo album from Richard Ashcroft, will be released on his new Righteous Phonographic Association label via Cooking Vinyl Records on 20th May. The first single from the album, ‘This Is How It Feels’, is now available as an instant grat when you pre-order the album and for purchase/to stream on digital outlets.
These People is the first new album in six years from the Brit and Ivor Novello award winning and Grammy nominated artist. Recorded in London, it was produced by Richard and longtime collaborator Chris Potter, as well as marking a reunion with Wil 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).
Equally channeling his classic output and exploring adventurous new sounds, textures and themes, and graced by one of the most singular and unforgettable voices in British music, These People reaffirms him as one of the most defining and prodigious songwriters of his generation.
Richard Ashcroft performs at Manchester’s Albert Hall on 14 May 2016. Tickets released at 9am on Friday 26 February.
