Richard Ashcroft Could Work With Noel Gallagher


Richard Ashcroft has said that he is open to working with Noel Gallagher and said that it could happen some time in the future. The Verve singer will be releasing a new solo album later this year.

He will release his new album These People on May 14th, which is his fourth solo album to date. Speaking in a recent interview with NME, Richard Ashcroft spoke about the possibility of working with Noel Gallagher on a new album.

He first spoke about the adulation he has for Noel saying “You can get as many songwriters in a room as you want for your new talent show contest winner, it’s never gonna sound like a great Noel Gallagher song sung by Liam, it’s never gonna reach ‘Live Forever’, it’s never gonna be [Verve song] ‘Lucky Man’. We know that.”

He then responded to recent claims that Noel is interested in doing an album with him. Ashcroft said “It’s a great compliment for Noel to say something like that, and in the future who knows what might happen. I wish things like this would’ve happened years ago.”

Richard Ashcroft also spoke about his fondness for his fellow Britpop rivals “Even the guys we had a bit of friction with, I look back and wish them luck.”
