Richard Ashcroft is now on the Glasgow’s Summer Sessions bill with Johnny Marr and which is headlined by Noel Gallagher.

It’ll be a gathering of British rock royalty at Bellahouston Park on Friday, August 26th, while much more recent starters Circa Waves have been confirmed for the bill too.

Biffy Clyro are playing the second night and lead Fall Out Boy, Wolf Alice and Cage The Elephant on August 27th.

Richard Ashcroft will release his new solo album ‘These People’ on May 20th through his own Righteous Phonographic Association label via Cooking Vinyl; when giving an interview to Steve Lamacq last week, he revealed he’s already looking ahead to his next record.

“The outro has just got a great atmosphere for the end of the record, bookends it with ‘Out Of My Body’, almost like a deconstruction of the psyche through the album,” he said. “Also leaves it open for the next record because it’s been a few years now so I’ve got a number of tunes ready to roll for the next one.”

“So I wanted to give that sense of, ‘it’s not the absolute full stop here, part one’s coming to an end, get ready for the next wave’.”
