Why Not Nothing? / Sweet Brother Malcolm
AA side 7 inch single released December 4th 2006
The final release of a hugely successful year for Richard Ashcroft is double AA side 7-inch single 'Why Not Nothing?' / 'Sweet Brother Malcolm'. Both the blisteringly powerful 'Why Not Nothing?' and the poignant, soulful 'Sweet Brother Malcolm' are taken from Richard Ashcroft's platinum album 'Keys To The World'.
Only held off the No.1 slot on it's release in January by the freakish sales of Arctic Monkeys debut album, 'Keys To The World' has spawned the hit singles 'Break The Night With Colour', 'Music Is Power', and 'Words Just Get In The Way'.
Having already completed two sold-out UK tours this year, plus a 30,000-capacity solo show at Old Trafford cricket ground, his biggest headline show since his days in The Verve, Richard Ashcroft is set to end 2006 with an Arena Tour. The dates are:
