Richard Ashcroft is back with a new single: "This Is How It Feels"
The Verve frontman will release his fourth solo album on May 20, which he describes in a cryptic statement as concerning "some personal and world events [taking] a dark turn leading to a sense of urgency and a clearing of the mind".
The album tackles topics such as the war in Syria, the Arab Spring uprisings and the death of a close friend because, as from Ashcroft’s statement, "to do nothing would be a crime in this sick nihilistic age of war".
Richard Ashcroft will be playing two intimate UK shows at Manchester Albert Hall (May 14th) and London Roundhouse (May 16th).
