RICHARD ASHCROFT announces new album NATURAL REBEL!
“With experience comes knowledge and for me this is my strongest set of songs to date. All my favourite sounds distilled into something that will hopefully give my fans lasting pleasure.
It is for them. Music is power.” RA
Richard Ashcroft is set to return with the October 19th release of his fifth solo studio album ‘Natural Rebel’. 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.
