Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up topped charts in the 1980s the world over and was the start of a career that would see him have eight consecutive UK Top 10 hits and 40 million sales. After a break of almost 30 years later he returned to recording with his platinum-selling album 50. Last month, he released his career-spanning compilation The Best of Me, which also included an independently recorded set of re-imagined interpretations of his songs.
