Hearthrob Rick Astley back with a new album '50'
By Christopher Cummins  with Agencies

‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ or stop performing 80’s pop sensation Rick Astley is back with his first album in a decade.
The single from the album is ‘Keep Singing’ a soulful track with a gospel feel, which Astley says, is representative of the rest of the album:
“Yeah, there is a bit of gospel going on there. Maybe real gospel would look at it and say, ‘That’s not gospel,’ but maybe it’s gospel inspired, let’s say. There’s something kind of a bit inspirational in quite a few of the lyrics, I think. Maybe that’s just because I’m 50 this year and I knew, through the process of making this record, I kind of knew that that was coming, and maybe it’s just a time to look back on your life and people who have been in your life.”

In his pomp Rick sold some 40 million records, his new collection '50' is out soon and he plans to take the show on the road this summer.
