“Love is these blues that I’m singing again.”
Richard Ashcroft is the Almighty. Why he’d make us wait over 10 years after Urban Hymns for the next album is beyond me. It certainly puts meaning to the adage “good things come to those who wait,” I suppose. We’re talking about the Verve here, so there’s not much need for my usual verbosity. The aptly, but perhaps uncreatively, titled album Forth hits shelves internationally today. Those of us unlucky enough to live stateside will have to wait one additional day (8/26) until the customary new release Tuesday.
