Richard Ashcroft has shared a cover of John Lennon's Bring On The Lucie (Freda Peeple).
Bring On The Lucie (Freda Peeple) was a protest song written and performed by Lennon and taken from his 1973 album Mind Games.

The release comes after the Wigan bard told Radio X he was working on a stripped-back album of his greatest tracks last year.
Asked by George Godfrey if he had any plans in the works, Ashcroft replied: "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."
The Drugs Don't Work singer added: "I'll be recording, I'm carrying on, moving on. So that will be my next record and from there when that comes out, that mythical night in my mind will take place."
