NME and Dotmusic reported today that Richard is finishing up his solo album.

News from JamTV
The future of the Verve still hangs in the balance. No one knows if frontman Richard Ashcroft
can put Humpty Dumpty back together again after guitarist Nick McCabe departed for
the second time in five years back in July 1998. But more importantly, no one is quite sure whether
the man they call Mad Richard wants to. Last December he spent three weeks in a south London
recording studio laying down tracks for what seems to be a solo record. According to sources in the
U.K., Ashcroft returned to the studio last month with Urban Hymns producer Chris Potter in tow.
Virgin Records doesn't have anything on the schedule for the Verve, and one employee told us that "
there may not even be a band to put out a record at this point." The Verve's last public appearance was
at Ireland's Slane Castle in August of 1998. At the time of the show, manager Jaz Summers said that he
didn't know if the band would record together again . . .
