Richard Ashcroft is set to release the new album Acoustic Hymns Vol. 1 on November 12th via RPA / BMG. The album features twelve newly recorded acoustic versions of classic songs from his back catalogue spanning both his solo career and his time with The Verve.

The album finds Ashcroft’s acoustic performances supported by a full band, which brings a lighter touch to songs that originally had a heftier sound such as his debut solo single ‘A Song For The Lovers’ or ‘C’mon People (We’re Making It Now)’. His renowned vocal has gained poise as his career has progressed, giving an added emotional resonance to his most poignant songwriting on ‘The Drugs Don’t Work’ or ‘Sonnet.’ Much of the material that features is drawn from the classic Urban Hymns, an album that Ashcroft and The Verve commenced recording sessions for 25 years ago this October.
