Two years ago Rick Astley returned with an album that surprised everyone, even himself. His No.1 album ‘50’ sold over 300,000 copies and was one of the biggest selling albums of 2016. What was even more incredible was that Rick wrote, produced and played every instrument on that comeback disc.
And guess what? He’s only gone and done it again!

His new album, ‘Beautiful Life’, is released 20th July on BMG with an iconic cover shot by Rankin. Each of the twelve tracks are written, produced and played by Rick.

Highlights are many and include the Chic flavoured title track, the evocative ‘Rise Up’, the insanely catchy ‘Try’ and the warm childhood memories of ‘The Good Old Days’.

After selling over 100,000 tickets on his 2017 tour, Rick and his band play the following 18 UK dates and is joined by very special guest Gabrielle. Tickets go on sale Friday 8th June.
