The Verve legend has confirmed his next record will be an acoustic retrospective of some of his best works, which he hopes to take to the stage in the future.

Ashcroft told Radio X in September 2020: "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."

The first fruits of the project came in February 2021, when Ashcroft released a cover of John Lennon's 1973 song Bring On The Lucie (Freeda People).
