Ashe to release debut album, 'Ashlyn,' on May 7
From April 7, 2021
Following the release of a double EP, her hit “Moral of the Story” and her current duet with FINNEAS, “Till Forever Falls Apart,” Ashe has announced when we can expect her full-length debut album.
Ashlyn features both “Moral of the Story” and “Till Forever Falls Apart.” Ashe wrote the project last summer while sitting outside with her co-executive producer Leroy Clampitt.
“We’d put blankets down and Leroy would bring out a keyboard and his acoustic guitar, and we’d just hang out in the grass and work on the songs in this very traditional way — completely detached from the internet and lit-up screens,” she explains in a statement.
“Ashlyn is deeply reflective and honest, full of stories of my experiences with fear and pain and turning those hard things into joy and independence,” the singer adds. “I’m an experiential writer and there was no way I was going to make an album that didn’t address my personal journey, from my brother’s death this last year to my own experiences with emotional abuse.”
The singer goes on: “I think you have to be vulnerable to create something really great and I believe I did that. Writing this album was also an opportunity to show that I’m not just a songwriter and a singer but a producer and a musician with a very clear vision for my art. I couldn’t be more proud of Ashlyn and I hope many people happen to love it too.”
