Rick Astley has launched ‘Beautiful Life’ – the first and title track of his forthcoming album – and you can listen to it on the Shoot Music – New Releases playlist.

Written and produced by Rick, who also plays every instrument, ‘Beautiful Life’ is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Two years ago Rick, who writes, produces and plays every instrument on ‘ Beautiful Life’, released ‘50’, a glorious comeback album that sold over 300,000 copies and was one of the biggest selling discs of 2016.

Rick says: “In the midst of all this madness, I just went back into my little home studio because that’s what I love to do.

“It’s my refuge really. I was tinkering about with bits and pieces and before you know it, I was making a new record.”

After selling over 100,000 tickets on his 2017 tour, Rick and his band play the following UK dates with special guest Gabrielle.
