California-based, RIAA Platinum-certified singer-songwriter Ashe exposed a new fantastic single “Emotional” via Mom+Pop Music
The song is taken from her highly-anticipated forthcoming sophomore album Rae, out on October 14th.
Directed by Jason Lester, the psychedelic-infused video gives life to the carefree tune and is reminiscent of The Velvet Underground’s live performance at Andy Warhol’s Factory.
Ashe shares: “Sometimes we just take things far too seriously in love and sometimes it’s just about driving a little too fast and having a little too much fun.”
The song follows earlier releases “Shower With My Clothes On” “Angry Woman” “Hope You’re Not Happy” and “Another Man’s Jeans” – to be taken from Rae, the follow up to her breakthrough debut, Ashlyn. That record spawned multiple global hits, including “The Moral Of The Story” and “Till Forever Falls Apart” – with FINNEAS – which was named one of the best songs of 2021 by the Los Angeles Times and surpassed 126 million streams on Spotify.
She also adds: “I’m stepping into a fun and sexy era. We care too much about what others think of us. When I don’t pay attention to that, the songs break through the noise. The biggest thing I want you to pull from the album is, ‘Do your thing, have fun, and don’t give a shit about what people think’.”
She has a diverse group of notable fans including Diane Keaton, Brian Wilson, Niall Horan, Shawn Mendes, Camilla Cabello, FINNEAS, Maggie Rogers, Dove Cameron, Arlo Parks and Sam Fischer. Stereogum praised her as a “wonderfully engaging writer with a flair for the dramatic,” while ELLE called her “an incredible lyricist” and Variety declared she’s a “giant young talent.”
