The Verve Glastonbury, Sunday 29th June, 2008

The Verve have brought Glastonbury 2008 to a close, headlining the Pyramid Stage tonight (June 29).

Topping the bill on the last night of the three day festival, the reunited band served up a mix of anthems and previewed their new album 'Forth' due out in August.

Kicking off with 'This Is Music', frontman Richard Ashcroft shouted out the refrain of the next song 'Sonnet' - "there's love if you want it!"- urging the swelling crowd on and they duly obliged with a loud sing-a-long.

"Thank you, you're sounding good tonight declared Ashcroft afterwards. "A shout out for Jay-Z for putting in a good performance but tonight is rock n roll!"

"It's time to get your dancing pants on," declared the singer as, joined by an amped up violinist, they played their first new song 'Sit And Wonder' which first featured on last year's reunion tour.

An epic version of 'History' followed with Nick McCabe's slide guitar more than compensating for the orchestra on the recorded version.

"Oh what a night," crooned Ashcroft between tracks causing some fans to sing The Four Seasons track, before he added. "This is about a morning I hope some of you have had, a 'Velvet Morning'."

Despite it being the festival's final night, the crowd proved to be in good voice as 'Drugs Don't Work' triggered an anthemic sing-a-long.

'Lucky Man' got the same euphoric treatment from the audience after which Ashcroft addressed the crowd.

"I want to thank Emily Eavis for asking us to play," he declared. "I hope her dad realises why he booked us now, I think he was worried we wouldn't be as good as Keane or something. But, no, respect to Keane, respect to all bands."

The band then underlined their headliner status launching into 'Bitter Sweet Symphony' causing the Pyramid Stage to break into a rapturous sing-a-long.

They followed that with brand new single 'Love Is Noise' getting the whole field dancing as the band brought the festival to its climax.

"Till next time, love and peace forever," shout Ashcroft as the band finished their set enigmatically without an encore.

‘The Shock Of The Lightning’ new single out September 29th

‘Dig Out Your Soul’ new album out October 6th

Oasis are set to return later this year with a new single and their seventh studio album. The single,‘The Shock Of The Lightning’ is released on September 29th and the album, ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ follows in October; it is the first new Oasis music since last year’s ‘Lord Don’t Slow Me Down’, taken from the on the road film of the same name. ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ sees Dave Sardy return to the producer’s chair following his work on their 2005 album, ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’. Recorded at Abbey Road and mixed in Los Angeles, all four members once again contribute tracks, but the recording marks a new approach for the band as described by the band’s principle songwriter, Noel:

“I wanted to write music that had a groove; not songs that followed that traditional pattern of verse, chorus and middle eight. I wanted a sound that was more hypnotic; more driving. Songs that would draw you in, in a different way. Songs that you would maybe have to connect to - to feel.”

The lead single is still unmistakably Oasis, a Noel penned song with Liam’s immediately familiar voice to the fore underlining their distinctive brand of finger in the socket rock ’n’ roll.

‘The Shock Of The Lightning’ may well represent the most recognisable Oasis song on the album but, again, the new approach on ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ was present on this lead track as Noel explains:

“If ‘The Shock Of The Lightning’ sounds instant and compelling to you, it’s because it was written dead fast. And recorded dead fast. ‘The Shock of The Lightning’ basically is the demo. And it has retained its energy. And there’s a lot to be said for that, I think. The first time you record something is always the best.”

‘Dig Out Your Soul’ will be the first album released on the band’s own Big Brother label worldwide.

The Verve Readies First Album Since 1997

The Verve has christened its reunion album "Forth" and will release it before the end of the summer.

The set is due Aug. 18 via EMI internationally and a day later in North America, where it will come out on the Verve's On Our Own imprint with distribution via MRI/Megaforce/RED.

"This is a very special band, with four incredibly talented people," the Verve's manager Jaz Summers told Billboard in February. "They made three great albums before. And they're going to make another great album now. There's a bit of magic when the four of them come together."

The Verve got back together in 2007 following a nine-year hiatus. The band's last album was 1997's "Urban Hymns," which launched the U.K. combo to worldwide stardom on the strength of the single "Bittersweet Symphony." Since then, frontman Richard Ashcroft has recorded three solo albums.

The Verve has a dozen summer festival dates on tap, including a co-headlining slot at Glastonbury later this month.
