Ash revert to pop

Ash have revealed their new album will be more poppy than Meltdown.

The new record, You Can’t Have It All, will be out in July and drummer Rick McMurray has said that whilst the sound will be lighter, lyrically the album will be heavier, inspired by Tim Wheeler’s relationship problems of the last couple of years. McMurray added that going back to having three members led to apprehension:

“It’s almost ten years since we were a three-piece, so we were all a wee bit worried how it would work out, but we wanted to go back and simplify. There were a lot of nerves, but after a few days we realised it was working so well we would keep going at it.”
