Richard Ashcroft today releases the video for his new single ‘This Is How It Feels’, taken from his fourth solo album ‘These People’, that will be released on his new Righteous Phonographic Association label via Cooking Vinyl Records on 20th May.
Directed by Richard himself, the video is the first official visual from the acclaimed solo artist in six years.
Last week saw the Brit and Ivor Novello award winning and Grammy nominated artist announce two special intimate live dates in support of the album on 14th May at Albert Hall in Manchester and 16th May at the Roundhouse in London, which both sold out within 25 minutes of going on sale.
Recorded in London, These People was produced by Richard and longtime collaborator Chris Potter, as well as marking a reunion with Wil Malone, who worked with Richard on the string arrangements on the seminal albums by The Verve A Northern Soul (1995), Urban Hymns (1997), and his platinum-selling and critically lauded debut solo album Alone with Everybody (2000).
Equally channelling his classic output and exploring adventurous new sounds, textures and themes, and graced by one of the most singular and unforgettable voices in British music, These People reaffirms him as one of the most defining and prodigious songwriters of his generation.
