Single expected in August!

After the press conference from the '4 Scott' event a few questions on the album was asked to Richard by the Sun. In it he talks about the new album as something in widescreen. He expects to release a single in August and the album we all are waiting for should be out in September. No names are yet given to neither the songs nor the album.

Also, 'The Test' is released as a single today. Go out and buy it, kids. Take it to the charts!

Don´t forget to go here...

Brian Wilson collaboration and more on '4 Scott'

Some very exciting news about the new album is posted on the Xfm site. Go there via this link. There is also a little piece there on the '4 Scott' gig. Ashcroft played 'Bittersweet Symphony', 'Lucky Man' and 'You On My Mind'. You can also find info on this from NME. I will add this info to the words section later this week and hopefully some new mp3:s as well.

The Test [vid] + Richie rocking your sox off

I saw the video for the Test yesterday but there was no Richard Ashcroft in sight. Visit the Chemical Brothers site on the Raft instead. There you will see him rocking about in the Chemical´s studio. Click here, then on 'artists & labels', 'c', click 'Chemical Brothers', then click on the media called 'Come With Us' and after about six minutes you will see a thin man with great hair rocking the Test while the Chems say they 'just held on to the mixing desks'...
