Warner Bros. Records artist Ashley Monroe has revealed the title track and cover art from her July 24 album, The Blade. The track–written by Marc Beeson, Allen Shamblin and Jamie Floyd–is avaible for purchase at iTunes after exclusively premiering People.com.
The album’s current single, “On To Something Good,” is also available ahead of three more tracks to be delivered before the release date, “I Buried Your Love Alive,” “The Weight of the Load” and “Bombshell.”
“‘The Blade’ is such a special song to me,” Monroe told People. “I have been on the receiving end of that pain. It actually makes me physically hurt when I sing it. And when I recorded it for sure, but in a good way. I’m so thankful to the writers of that song. They talked about my heartbreak in a way that I’ve never heard. That’s hard to do.”
Monroe’s sophomore Warner Bros. effort was again produced by close friends Vince Gill and Justin Niebank.
Monroe will share a new song with fans during a performance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on July 27 to celebrate The Blade’s release.
Monroe has collaborated with countless artists, being a member of the Pistol Annies with Miranda Lambert, and recently earning her first No. 1 song at country radio for “Lonely Tonight,” a duet with label-mate Blake Shelton, which earned the pair a CMT Music Award nomination.
