Richard Ashcroft has announced a UK & Ireland headline tour for April & May 2019, which culminates with a performance at the London Olympia, the first performance at this historic venue since Primal Scream 8 years ago.
His upcoming 2018 UK album launch shows sold out within minutes, but fans now have another chance to get tickets to see Ashcroft in action.
Richard Ashcroft releases his fifth solo studio album ‘Natural Rebel’ on October 19th. The album will be released on his own RPA label and will be his first released via BMG. ‘Natural Rebel’ represents the latest chapter in a hugely successful solo career for the former Verve frontman and Ivor Novello winner. It follows ‘Alone With Everybody’ (#1, 2000), ‘Human Conditions’ (#3, 2002), ‘Keys to the World’ (#2, 2006) and ‘These People’ (#3, 2016).
Featuring ten new songs, all of which were written by Ashcroft, ‘Natural Rebel’ was produced by the singer-songwriter alongside Jon Kelly (Paul McCartney, Kate Bush) and Emre Ramazanoglu (Bobby Gillespie, Jarvis Cocker). The majority of its recording took place at State of the Ark Studios in Richmond, with further sessions at The Bunker, Tileyard Studios and Hoxa HQ.
