Ashlyn: The optimist’s Taylor Swift. Somewhere “Between indie & Disney.” A divorce ballad. Reflecting & almost… forgiving? Cinematic. Classical. Outspoken. Ashe brings you all of these qualities in her brand-new debut album Ashlyn. The listener should be ready for slow starts, big builds, and broadway-style crescendos. Think about it, sing it, and let us know what you think about it!
The background behind “Moral of the Story”: Ashe originally wrote the song Moral of the Story right after she filed for a divorce from her now ex-husband that she tied the knot with at age 23. She released this song on Valentines Day in 2019 and it has racked up a measly 270+ million streams on Spotify alone. Ashe brings us version #2 of this song on Ashlyn as a duet with One Direction alum Niall Horan at the very end. Therefore, just like all good Marvel movies, you’ll want to stay and experience this new album all the way through to the end.
