She offered a refreshing, vibrant show from inside a low-lit lounge, decked out with neon signs and lights. Ashe danced around the vintage-looking setting and revealed a balloon wall spelling “Ashlyn” in reference to her new record. The camera then followed the artist, clad in a light gray pantsuit, toward her band as well as an eight-piece string ensemble, sharing yet another surprise for viewers to take in.
The bright and string-laden track appears on Ashe’s brand-new debut album Ashlyn, which arrived on May 7. The song also has a whimsical music video that premiered May 5, featuring her own creative direction.
Ashe’s 14-track LP also includes a very special collab entitled “Till Forever Falls Apart” with vocals from none other than FINNEAS. The duo both shine with their powerful, sweet vocals that narrate a beautiful love story that may or may not make even the toughest music listeners misty-eyed. The two are nothing short of euphoric in their intimate dance and vocal performance.
Many music fans may have first learned of the artist when her raw track detailing her divorce “Moral Of The Story” found virality on TikTok. Famous content creators such as Charli D’Amelio, Quen Blackwell and more shared the sound featuring the lyrics, “Some mistakes get made, that’s alright, that’s okay,” in both serious and funny videos garnering millions of views. The rest is history.
Ashe’s mystifying performance was preceded by interviews with actress Amy Adams and Democratic politician and author Stacey Abrams, as well as Meyers’ recurring desk bit “Ya Burnt” featuring jokes about vaccine cards, Philly accents and more.
Check out the full episode here as well as Ashe’s debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers below.
Meyers is definitely a friend to the alt community as he has hosted artists such as Ashnikko, Weyes Blood, Post Malone, Gwen Stefani and more. In fact, on May 7, he had a chat with Dave Grohl followed by a Foo Fighters performance of “Chasing Birds” from Medicine At Midnight. You can watch that episode here.
Ashe did tease her TV performance for LNSM over the weekend when she posted a short video walking up to a story window with old television sets. The sets displayed the logos for The Today Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers and American Idol. The caption reads, “BIG TV WEEK.”
