The beloved ex-frontman of the iconic British act The Verve has been a successful solo artist for over 15 years. The Britpop legend is famed for singing anthems like 'Bittersweet Symphony' but since their break-up in the late '90s, he's carved out an impressive solo career - even working with notoriously selective musicians like Noel Gallagher. However, it's been 10 years since the release of third solo album Keys to the World, making it about time for some brand new music. 2016's LP These People scratches that itch, with the brilliant new single 'This is How it Feels' foreshadowing a masterpiece of a record.

Richard Ashcroft Biography - First Live Tour in Six Years
Born in the Wigan suburb of Billinge, the budding musician soon found fellow musical compatriots at Upholland Comprehensive School, where he met future band mates Simon Jones, Simon Tong and Peter Salisbury. With the addition of guitarist Nick McCabe soon afterwards, the band was formed. Debut single 'All in the Mind' received a huge amount of attention for The Verve, and they eventually reached the upper echelons of the charts with enormous singles 'Bittersweet Symphony' and 'The Drugs Don't Work'.
When the group split amid long-running tensions, the frontman went solo. His first album Alone With Everybody was released shortly after the turn of the millennium and allowed him to embark on a sold-out American tour. A second, more spiritual LP followed with Human Conditions, while his long anticipated third record Keys to the World established him as an artist of distinction. He spent the following years working on side project the United Nations of Sound, but abandoned it after one eponymously titled album. It would be another six years before he announced plans for new album These People, which sees the music-maker back on top form to regain his crown as an enigmatic rock idol.
