Ashley Monroe To Release New Acoustic EP On February 15

Artist: Ashley Monroe
Album: Sparrow Acoustic Sessions EP
Label: Warner Nashville
Release date: February 15

Ashley Monroe kicks off her UK tour tomorrow and she’s just announced that she’s releasing a new EP next month. Sparrow Acoustic Sessions EP will be released on 15th February 2019 and it will feature five acoustic versions of songs from her fourth studio album. 

“It means a lot to be releasing the acoustic version of Wild Love while I’m in the UK, because the song was inspired by my very first trip to London. The confidence everyone had made me feel so alive. The fans here in the UK really listen and appreciate music so deeply and it brings me such an energy to be back playing shows here.”

Monroe has established herself as one of Nashville’s finest singer-songwriters, able to conjure emotion in unexpected ways and to always find the humanity just beneath the surface. Critical acclaim appears to be something that all of Ashley Monroe’s albums have in common. Like a Rose (2013), which included the sublime — and alternatingly bawdy and poignant — singles “Weed Instead of Roses,” “You Got Me” and the title track.

Sparrow (2018) turns Monroe’s life experiences into moody, orchestral masterpieces that explore all sides of a fully formed woman unashamed of her scars – the maternal tendencies, the childlike wonder and the sultry moments behind closed doors, as showcased on her single “Hands On You”. Recorded with Grammy winning producer Dave Cobb in the legendary RCA Studio A while Ashley was pregnant with her son Dalton.
