The Adjustment Bureau Album

The last time we heard from Richard Ashcroft, he’d released his debut album with new, post-Verve project United Nations Of Sound (the album actually isn’t officially out in the US until 3/22). This is another new track from Ashcroft, for the soundtrack to the film The Adjustment Bureau, starring Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, and John Slattery’s hair. The title and song’s message comes with some Ashcroft dark sarcasm, since the film is about how our entire futures are planned for us. “Future’s Bright” has a rave up at the end, though, full of layered piano, background shouts, and snares. The song is a collaboration with Thomas Newman, who scored WALL-E, among many other films. Listen:

The Adjustment Bureau soundtrack is out tomorrow via Relativity Music Group.

  1. Ashcroft shows spots of genius but his technical ability really limits what he can do in his solo career. Fourth was pretty good, too bad the band couldn’t stay together.

  2. Like the track, bet it’s a good one to drive to. Especially like the quiet middle 8 & Newman’s orchestration provides scope behind Ashcroft’s sometimes sunny, sometimes sarky vocal.

    Too bad Ashcroft is dogged by backward-looking fanatics who want to sabotage his work everytime he tries to move on from The Verve’s chemically induced collective destruction. Pity Stuart Malan can’t spell Forth either.

  3. Paradise is the most stunning track by ashcroft. That song is an attempt to demonstrate to its audience that the modern age is not all bad and that no matter how dark things may get, there is always the chance something good. I love that song..where can I get the lyrics?

  4. lyrics here…enjoy Paradise RPA style…
    You’re just like I was
    So full of love, so full of love
    I feel you’re taking me back
    To all those feelings of yesterday
    Dark and dusty tracks

    How long can I stay here?
    How long can I pray here?

    You know we meet in another space
    You turn around and I see your face
    Oh what a fruit, what a tree you shall be
    You’ll be fed by the mountains, fed by the streams

    (Set a sail) Set a sail for paradise (We’ll leave in the morning)
    (Set a sail) Set a sail to paradise (We’ll leave in the morning)

    I know when I’m losing control
    I play I am the cosmos
    And let the feelings roll

    How long can I stay here?
    How long can I pray here?

    You know we meet in another place
    You turn around and I see your face
    Oh and what a fruit, what a tree you shall be
    You’ll be fed by the mountains, the crystal streams
    Then we go for a walk
    We hold hands and start to talk
    Oh what a fruit, what a tree this love will be
    You’ll be fed by the mountains, fed by me

    Set a sail for paradise (Leave in the morning)
    Set a sail for paradise (Leave in the morning)
    Set a sail for paradise
    Leave in the morning
    We can leave in the morning

    Leave in the morning (Set a sail)
    Leave in the morning
    Leave in the morning (Set a sail)
