Ashley Monroe confirmed that her fourth studio album, Sparrow, will be out on April 20.

Ashley opened up about the heavy themes that this album tackles. She unpacked the emotion she went through dealing with the childhood trauma of losing her father while writing Sparrow. She wrote in a press release:

“I was unpacking a lot of stuff. I was singing, and identifying what it’s like to be left. No one told me what I should do, back then, when the world started to crumble. To me this record is about acknowledging past hurt, forgiveness and freedom to move forward. The most terrible things that happen to you are the most beautiful songs. That’s what I respect the most about music.”

Additionally, Ashley collaborated with fellow Pistol Annies member Angaleena Presley, among other songwriters, to create this album. Taste of Country also reports that Ashley was pregnant with her first child, Dalton, when she was writing Sparrow. Her pregnancy impacted her writing experience.
