UK ALBUM LAUNCH SHOWS SOLD OUT WITHIN MINUTES
UK & IRELAND HEADLINE TOUR ANNOUNCED FOR APRIL/MAY 2019
"Ex-Verve man delivers best LP in years. This is easily the strongest set of tunes he's put out this millennium...a fine addition to Richard Ashcroft's hand."
'He's undeniably reaquired his mojo lately...any heart that ongoingly swells for Lucky Man's smouldering anthemics may actually burst for Natural Rebel.'
Richard Ashcroft today releases a further track ‘That’s When I Feel It’ from the forthcoming album ‘Natural Rebel’.. It’s a timeless classic that oozes with emotion and showcases Ashcroft’s irrepressible swagger and signature vocal. Last week, Ashcroft 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 (full dates below).
