“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 replied.
“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.”
Speaking to Billboard in an interview published yesterday (June 24), John Kennedy – one of two managers Ashcroft hired last year – shone a light on the process of approaching Mick Jagger and Keith Richards for the return of the publishing rights of the ‘Urban Hymns’ classic.
