He’s the comeback king of 80’s pop, and now he releases his EIGHTH studio album!
by Christopher Smith
In 2016, after an absence of more than ten years, Rick Astley made a triumphant return to music. His comeback album “50” went straight to the top of the British charts and has been certified platinum for sales of more than 300,000 copies. It marked a miraculous comeback and gave him his first chart topper, thirty years after his debut album “Whenever You Need Somebody”.
Rick had sold 40 million records since his phenomenal debut “Never Gonna Give You Up” topped the UK and US singles chart in the summer of 1987. Since then, it seems, we’ve never fallen out of love with the cheeky chappy from Newton Le Willows.
And on 20th July, he releases his eighth studio album “Beautiful Life”, the title track of which has already been released – and it’s pretty darn good!
Rick will also be touring across much of Europe from September, finishing in the UK in November with a number of dates scheduled.

And he was helping an old friend celebrate her 50th birthday recently!
With ancestry.co.uk using his 1988 hit “Together Forever” for their latest TV advert, a new album and an eagerly anticipated tour, it looks like 2018 is going to be another cracking year for one of Britain’s best loved singers.
Welcome back Rick!
