Since Im no longer checking the news section on the official site, due to known reasons, I almost let this slip by my fingers... Also, you should check out the links section. Seems ashcroftunofficial.co.uk have something very exciting to offer...

"10/05/02 - SPECIAL GUEST WITH OASIS

Richard Ashcroft returns to the limelight as special guest to Oasis at their Lancashire County
Cricket Club show in Manchester on Saturday 14th September.

This date comes as a prelude to the release of Ashcroft's second solo album, the follow-up to
2000's Alone with Everybody, which is expected this autumn.

In February this year Ashcroft made a brief appearance with Oasis at the Royal Albert Hall,
he also performed at the 4Scott show at The Scala last month, both shows were in aid of cancer
research.

More on Brian Wilson!
 

NME is running a piece on the Richard Ashcroft/Brian Wilson collaboration. According to our fav genius it´s one of the best songs he has ever written and Brian Wilson is on it. An approval from Wilson is what it takes to have it released! Oh my, oh my!

I have updated the words section with all the info I have on the new album.

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...
