Richard Ashcroft unveils cover of John Lennon’s ‘Bring On The Lucie’


Richard Ashcroft today releases his version of the John Lennon song ‘Bring On The Lucie (FREDA PEEPLE)’.

The original version of the song featured on Lennon’s 1973 album Mind Games. Richard recorded the song during sessions at Abbey Road Studios and Redtone Studios in East Palo Alto, California.

It was produced by Steve Wyreman (who plays live with Ashcroft and featured on the 2018 album Natural Rebel) alongside Chris Potter (who co-produced every Ashcroft album from The Verve’s Urban Hymns to the 2016 solo record These People) and Ashcroft. It was mixed by Potter and Ashcroft.

The track is accompanied by a video, which shows Ashcroft recording and performing the song at Abbey Road and follows the news that the former Verve frontman and guitarist will headline two shows at the London Palladium on May 21 and 22, with both shows selling out immediately.

Richard Ashcroft is a two-time Ivor Novello winner (Songwriter of the Year in 1998 and Outstanding Contribution to British Music in 2019) who has released five Top 5 solo albums, including the #1 debut ‘lone With Everybody.

He first came to attention with The Verve, with who he released one of the biggest albums of the era in the shape of Urban Hymns as well as a succession of anthems which remain staples of his live set today, including ‘The Drugs Don’t Work’, ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’, ‘Lucky Man’ and ‘Sonnet’.
