Album: These People (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This These People track finds Richard Ashcroft singing of Middle Eastern uprisings. He told NME: "Over the period I wrote this record we've lived through incredible times. Highly contentious wars were going into the pot; grassroots movements turning into semi-revolutions. Tahir Square (Centre of the Egyptian Revolution riots in 2011). It was everything kicking off all over the globe, people being divided. Pepper spray everywhere, tear gas."
