GRAMMY-nominated Nashville artist Ashley Monroe has today announced the release of a brand new EP featuring five acoustic versions of songs from her critically-acclaimed fourth album ‘Sparrow’, and shared one of the tracks – “Wild Love” (listen here / watch below). ‘Sparrow (Acoustic Sessions)’ will be released on 15th February 2019 and is available to pre-order now.
The Dave Cobb-produced album, which landed at #1 on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart was featured on a number of significant end of year lists, with Esquire, Billboard, Stereogum, American Songwriter, Nashville Scene and more hailing the record among the best releases of 2018.
Currently on a headline tour in the UK & Europe, with two sold-out dates in London and stops in Glasgow, Oslo and Amsterdam, Monroe noted the relevance of choosing this week to release the first song and announce the new EP: “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.”
