Verve won't return
Richard Ashcroft doesn't think The Verve will ever get back together. The band's former frontman - who since splitting from the group last summer has formed new group United Nations of Sound - believes there is little point in the band reuniting because they have already achieved so much in their career.
He told ShortList magazine: "I can't see any reason why, after headlining Glastonbury, headlining Coachella, headlining in Japan and making an album that's better than 99 per cent of other bands' albums, The Verve would get back together."
The iconic rockers - who had already split twice in their 20-year music career - reunited briefly in 2007, before splitting again amid rumours of tension within the group in 2009.
Richard explained: "Our reunion was more reassuring for our audience than a nice tidy situation. The personalities are who we are, so s**t happens."
The 38-year-old musician insists his new band United Nations of Sound will have a unique sound and he has been inspired by Kanye West's former mentor, hip-hop producer No I.D.
He said: "I went to New York to work with a hip-hop producer called No I.D. He describes the finished album as a 'cake!' He said, 'What type of cake do you want?' and I came in with a lot of ingredients - I had a hard drive full of ideas."
"'Bittersweet Symphony' is pretty much a hip-hop song, so I knew working with No I.D. would take my music to another level."Posted on 8 Jul 2010 07:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
