Back in September of last year, Ashcroft revealed that he was planning to release an acoustic album compiled of some of his greatest hits.
“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,” Ashcroft said of the forthcoming project to Radio X.
“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.”
In addition, Ashcroft also recently announced two London shows set to take place at the London Palladium in May of this year.
