Acoustic Hymns Vol. 1 features twelve newly recorded acoustic versions of English singer/songwriter Richard Ashcroft's classic songs from his back catalogue spanning both his solo career and his time with The Verve.
The album finds Ashcroft's acoustic performances supported by a full band, which brings a lighter touch to songs that originally had a heftier sound such as his debut solo single "A Song For Lovers" or "C'mon People (We're Making It Now)". His renowned vocal has gained poise as his career has progressed, giving an added emotional resonance to his most poignant songwriting on "The Drugs Don't Work" or "Sonnet".
Much of the material that features is drawn from the classic Urban Hymns, an album that Ashcroft and The Verve commenced recording sessions for 25 years ago in October 1996.
