Daniel Ash is preparing to release Freedom I Love, a limited edition compilation of solo material that also features three new tracks, including “You Unravel Me.”
There will be 1,000 signed and numbered copies issued.
The Northampton-born Ash played guitar for the legendary Goth outfit Bauhaus and also fronted Tones On Tail as well as Love And Rockets. Not only is he one of the most innovative and gifted guitarists around, he’s one of the finest singer/songwriters on the planet. His songs effortlessly capture the beauty of the darkness and the mysterious shadows that glide through it.
“Night is a time of rigor, but also of mercy…there are truths which one can see only when it’s dark,” Isaac Bashevis Singer once wrote. Ash’s songs have always been about these truths–his compositions are dark meditations on existence, the cosmos and the roads we have to travel to find the parts of ourselves we’ve left behind.
