Tim Wheeler and the somewhat recently downsized Ash have announced the title and tracklisting for their fifth full-length studio album, Twilight Of The Innocents. Returning to their days as a trio, the Irish boys dropped guitarist Charlotte Hatherley, headed to their very own NYC studio and self-produced the sessions themselves.
The album was definitely inspired to some extent by Wheeler's relocation to the Big Apple. About the sources of his songwriting, he said: "With Meltdown I was trying to deal with anything that wasn't personal. But I went through a lot of changes in my life before moving to New York and it was quite a confusing time. With this album, I wanted to deal with a lot of those emotions. There's optimism and there's hope in there, but there's some pretty heavy stuff too. It's definitely an album of experience - there's no way I could've written these songs five or ten years ago."
