New working title for upcoming album

The Verve man returning with United Nations Of Sound

The Verve's Richard Ashcroft has revealed exclusively to NME.COM that the working title of his forthcoming new album is 'Redemption'.

The singer/guitarist is returning this year with a new band, which he has named United Nations of Sound. The album is expected to be released in late March.

Ashcroft has teamed up with producer No ID for the album, who produced Jay-Z's 2009 singles 'Run This Town' and 'DOA (Death Of Auto-Tune)'. It is being mixed by long-time collaborator Chris Potter.
