AppleMusic has added Bittersweet Symphony to their Acoustic Hits playlist.
Patricia Fumagali My favorite song ever 🖤
The Verve World Middle of the road stuff should appeal to Val doonican fans.
Gaz Matthews Writing says “you come in on you’re own and you leave on you’re own”
Tony Sanderson The best song ever written, makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck from the first cord...it's perfection.
John Piccolo I wanna wish you a very Happy Birthday Richard Ashcroft! Thank you for all the music. You are one biggest reasons I started playing music and writing songs. ✌
Zachariah Jarrett Just in time for Christmas.
Just dust off this old ball sack and pick the odd hair off; good as gold, eh Richard?
Dean Gordon Not the same without the strings through.whenever I hear that intro I don’t Just get goosebumps, I turn into an actual goose called Bartholomew
Gary Crawford Looking forward to this release.🔥
Matthew J Copp Almost sounds like a completely new track with the same hair standing effect. Can't wait for this album
Dale Green Can't wait to listen to this on October 29th in Liverpool, wonder if LG Will make a guest appearance
Todd Cinderich It sounds new Richard.
It has always been one of my favorites.
Klug Michael Brilliant song, Brilliant vocalist 👍👍
Holly Spradling You are beautiful! Thank you for the music!
Caroline MacConnell To the world's best singer, writer and performer...happy 50th birthday!!

Bibs Andy History mate , happy birthday to you loved the verve from day 1 Stephen Carver !
Fiona Mckenzie Thank you for your brilliant music xxx
Ryan Sams Brilliant. Your voice gets more powerful over time for me. 👊🏻
Frank Martinez I want to know the story behind that album cover photo. It looks like Kate just found out Richard has cancer and a photographer photographed that very moment. Richards voice is really rough on Bitter Sweet as well, but still sounds awesome.
Anthony Della Catena Happy birthday, "Mad Richard".
Marco Aletti Dopo 3 anni speravo in un nuovo album
Marco Aletti Preferisco un nuovo album di inediti
Patricia Pariona Chapa Claro que la escucharé Richi 🎉
Marco Aletti Non mi interessa questo album
Macky McDonald Whatever ashcroft had in the verve is long gone sadly. Can't believe its the same guy who wrote so it goes and on your own etc but he's just a bland singer songwriter now
Pleased to announce that Richard will be releasing the new album ‘Acoustic Hymns Vol. 1’ on October 29th. 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...
Mark Bradley Still a great singer and songwriter but he reaches a totally different and untouchable level when he’s with The Verve. If Abba can reunite then surely these guys can have one more crack as their music is absolutely stunning 🙏
Matthew Patchett I love RA with all my heart but what’s the point of this, nothing beats the original versions ??!?
Chicca Breccia What about new music? 😅
Jojo Hanna Waited a long time for an acoustic album.
Only 5 more weeks til Palladium gig !
Richard Breslin Beautiful photo of Kate and Richard.
Cannot wait for the release of this classic album.
Claire Not long before Royal Albert Hall!
Mark Millar C’mon People (We’re Making It Now)’ featuring Liam Gallagher is brilliant. Liam sings lead vocal
Jeremy Warren Love his work, when I read Acoustic, I hoped it was just a title not an entire Album.
Irina Yakimenko A great version of the song! Though I'd prefer some new songs
Simon Brown Richard I love you and have stuck by you through some seriously dodgy shite, but fuck me it is an absolute desecration to allow an album with your name on it to include a song called "Bittersweet Symphony" when I've spent 24 FUCKING YEARS telling THE WORLD that BITTER and SWEET are SEPERATE FUCKING WORDS. 🤯
Jon Lock Managed to buy the gold, yellow and turquoise copies! Looking forward to the postman arriving at the end of October! 😀
Guy Whitehead Album ordered and counting down the days to the Liverpool gig
Merche Ortiz De Urbina Bermejo Happy birthday Richard ashcroft i like very much the song so sister acoustic is a song exceptional sonny ashcroft is very pretty man

Carl Kenny Cassette? Howzabout 8 track for me ford cortina? Anyway, looking forward to this!
Tune in to Radio X tomorrow from 8.30am to hear Richard reveal details about his new music on the Chris Moyles Breakfast show.
Laurel Hoare Is he recovering? Personally, I think he shines far brighter as a solo artist than he ever did with The Verve (no disrespect to them as I loved the band) ... just love his solo stuff more .... X
Alan Bartley-Pratt Didn’t even know that Knob Moyles was still going….
Rasťo Tóth I wish that The Verve re-formed again
Rob Croft Has anyone told Richard he’ll need to wear a mask and a negative Covid test before visiting Radio X HQ? I’d not I fear a no show! 😬
Jodie Sherwin Forster I followed Richard Ashcroft and his gigs across the UK back in the day and I’ve always said…the man is one of the rare performers that actually sounds better live than on any recorded platform.
He is just incredible and always has been ❤️
The other incredible person I’d put with him is the amazing Kelly Jones/Stereophonics.
You can’t get any better live than these absolute legends….🤩
If I didn’t live in Sydney now - I’d still be trekking across the UK following both Richard and Stereophonics trust me!
David Williams Richard would you consider ever playing one of our events.
Rock Off Fibro is raising awareness through music & art about the incurable illness Fibromyalgia along with PTSD and Depression.
We would love to have you on board to gig or to just help raise the profile of the illness.
Merche Ortiz De Urbina Bermejo Richard ashcroft, Kate radley ashcroft and sonny ashcroft are the family perfect musician British
Andy Morris I think Richard Ashcroft is truly awesome however there is not a cat in hells chance I’m listening to Chris Moyles he a f*ckin awful DJ I genuinely have no idea how he is still in a job
Brian Stewart Acoustic Album.
“Yeah, at the moment I’m set to start on an acoustic set of some of the best tunes […] and stripping them back and laying them bare basically, so that will be my next thing. I’m excited about that,” Ashcroft replied.
Jason Cadle I just want to know will Richard be playing the Palladium next month????
Rach Eaton Bet staff at the station have to covid test for work regularly…but fans that are willing to test/prove vaccination and go to his gigs (and have paid!), he cancels on 🤷🏻♀️
Ian Millward Class live artist get back to middlesbrough you where absolutely outstanding when you played the town hall ,,,I came out thinking wtf ,,,,seen you many times b4 but that night ye where totally unreal
James R Off the top of my head, if he's stripping back his solo work for an acoustic best of, id like to hear - On a Beach, World keeps turning, Keys to the world, Hold On!
Eddie Davidson Need to play The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
Perfect intimate location filled with history. Would probably sell out in 15 minutes tops.

4 tickets for Bank arena gig for sale
Apologies to my fans for any disappointment but the festival was informed over 10 days ago that I wouldn’t be playing once it had become part of a government testing programme. I had informed my agent months ago I wouldn’t be playing concerts with restrictions The status of the festival was one thing when I signed up for it, but , sadly was forced to become something else. It must be an age thing but the words Government Experiment and Festival 😂😂😂#naturalrebel#theydontownme RA
