Former The Verve frontman, Richard Ashcroft releases his fifth solo album These People today.
These People talks about “personal and world events [taking] a dark turn leading to a sense of urgency and clearing of the mind”. Ashcroft adds to NME: “Over the period I wrote this we’ve lived through incredible times. We’re in a very nihilistic age, we’re in death-ridden, world war times and I like to reflect the society we’re in but I also wanna possibly project something that gives us a sense of hope.”

In the run up to the release, Ashcroft played intimate sold-out shows in Manchester and London and he plays Glasgow May 27th.
Tour dates in the UK and Europe continue over the summer, including a special guest appearance on Saturday June 11th at the Isle of Wight Festival.
