Ashley Monroe is giving fans another taste of her forthcoming album, Rosegold, today with the latest track “Til It Breaks.”
It’s another slow-tempo, psychedelic song where Ashley is prodding her lover to loosen up and let their walls down. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the project, because it seems like Ashley might be taking a different direction with this album, digging deeper into her creative ability as an artist.
The release is also accompanied by a new music video:
She’s hinted at the change of direction already in a recent interview with Garden and Gun, saying she was inspired by a range of feelings and artists that don’t necessarily fit into the “country” box:
“I’ve already seen some people say, ‘She was so country! I loved her! Why’d she change?’ But someone else can’t tell me what I am. I wrote all the songs and I’m singing all the parts, so it is me.
I’ll never not be able to write country songs—that’s the first thing I started writing. But I think sometimes people get attached to a name, or that you have to be this sound. I love traditional [country music], and I’m a keeper of the old just as much as I am a flag-flyer for the new.”
She’s previously released the first single,Drive, with the entire album set to release on April 30th.
