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.
Richard has today also released an acoustic track ‘Hey Columbo’. The stand alone track was written by Richard Ashcroft and produced by Ashcroft & Jon Kelly. Ashcroft says of the song; “Warning: This song contains explicit language. Do not play on the school run, but turn it up on the way home.”
