Today, May 7, buzzworthy singer/songwriter Ashe releases her debut full-length record, Ashlyn.

The overwhelming success of Ashe’s “Moral of the Story” (which, per a news release, has totaled 758 million streams to date, generated Ashe a million Instagram followers, over 9.5 million monthly Spotify listeners, one million TikTok followers and beyond) in 2019 essentially launched her into the public consciousness and earned her fans around the world — and, as a result, has built up her first full-length album into a full-fledged “event.”

The record is available now on digital platforms and will be released in physical format in the months to come.

Recent weeks have seen the sharing of a few tracks from Ashlyn as a preview of the full record, with “Me Without You” the most recent. A cheery song of confidence that calls to mind Ashe’s influences like the Beatles and Beach Boys, the song’s video features a barefoot Ashe leading a choreographed dance in a field, before transporting to a bar sequence that involves broken glass, more dancing and a lot of style:

Said Ashe about finally being able to release her new record:

 “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. 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.”

“Till Forever Falls Apart,” a collaboration with FINNEAS (her co-producer on previous EPs and Billie Eilish’s brother/creative partner), was another pre-release track:

Two versions of “Moral of the Story” are included on the record — the original and a new reimagination with Niall Horan:
