Richard Ashcroft has released a video for track Born To Be Strangers, taken from his latest album Natural Rebel. Ashcroft has also announced a UK and Ireland headline tour for April and May 2019, which culminates with a performance at the London Olympia, the first performance at this historic venue since Primal Scream eight years ago.

Natural Rebel, his fifth solo studio album is released on his own RPA label and will be his first released via BMG. It represents the latest chapter in a hugely successful solo career for the former Verve front man and Ivor Novello winner.

Featuring ten new songs, all of which were written by Ashcroft, Natural Rebel was produced by the singer-songwriter alongside Jon Kelly (Paul McCartney, Kate Bush) and Emre Ramazanoglu (Bobby Gillespie, Jarvis Cocker). The majority of its recording took place at State of the Ark Studios in Richmond, with further sessions at The Bunker, Tileyard Studios and Hoxa HQ.
