Richard Ashcroft – They don’t own me (new video)

Richard Ashcroft unveiled the music video for his third single “They don’t own me” taken from “These people”, released last May.
The track, which reminds The Verve’s 1997 classic “Lucky man”, is a gorgeous track- the chorus repeats and gets under the skin. Strings are provided by Wil Malone who has worked with Richard from back in the Verve days and his debut solo album.


The video for “They don’t own me”, features the British singer pilots a motorbike across a gorgeous countryside.
The clip also captures Ashcroft strumming an acoustic guitar by a fire, basking in a vast field and rumbling through the woods with two dogs by his sideall of which add to the song’s ramshackle country vibes.

Lyrics:

Is it true what they say?
Nothing in life is free
Are you looking this way
Surely this can’t be

I know that you
ain’t like the other ones
March to a different beat, babe
Banging a different drum

I think I told you before that
They don’t
They don’t own me
I think I told you before that
They don’t
They don’t own me

I ain’t playing their games
I am nobody’s fool
Yeah, I know how it feels
I broke those rules

Are you walking with me?
Or are you running with them?
Are you ever free?
Is this something that you understand?

I think I told you before that
They don’t
They don’t own me
I think I told you before that
They don’t
They don’t own me

They don’t
They don’t own me

Is it really that strange
to try and find some peace?
Is it so opaque
That you still can’t see?

Them, right up above
I wonder what they can hear
I guess we all mess up, baby
Mmm, we’re here, then disappear

I think I told you before that
They don’t
They don’t own me
I think I told you before that
They don’t
They don’t own me

I think I told you before that
They don’t
They don’t own me
I think I told you before, yeah
They don’t
They don’t own me
