50 With Autographed CD Booklet
Brit Award-winner and Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and producer; music legend Rick Astley has left an indelible mark on pop-culture since his emergence into the limelight nearly thirty years ago. He has sold over 40 million records; had the UK's biggest selling single of 1987; is the first male solo artist to see his first eight singles reach the UK Top Ten; and in 2002, saw his "Greatest Hits" compilation album go gold.
On his 7th album - and first studio record released in over a decade - 50, Astley returns to his musical roots with mighty force. He plays every instrument on the album and penned each track. His key influences and complex understanding of different musical genres are evident in his songwriting, which draws from his life and inspirations. At times it's reflective and vulnerable, at others it's uplifting and progressive, but his distinctive, soulful voice remains familiar, enriched by the last decade of increasing time spent touring.
