Richard Ashcroft Rocks Out With The Roots on Jimmy Fallon

Former Verve frontman performed his new solo single 'Are You Ready?'


Former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft went on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to perform his new single "Are You Ready?" with The Roots. The song isn't a radical departure from his Brit-Pop roots, but the Roots thoroughly funkified it. Ashcroft reformed with The Verve for an album and tour a couple of years ago, but when it wound down they broke up for a third time. Ashcroft is now on a short solo tour in America that concludes Thursday night in Boston.
