Johnny Ashby unveils his heart-warming new single “Born Again”
English singer/songwriter Johnny Ashby has released a stunning new single “Born Again”. Written about the desire to turn back the clocks and have the chance of getting a clean slate of life, Ashby has concocted a wistfully romantic and impassioned release, that we can all relate to at some level.
Currently based in Los Angeles, the musician delivers his recognisable indie Americana sound, shimmering with warm guitars, bold percussion and heart-wrenching lyrics, emitting a sentimental tone. Ashby shares, “There’s a lyric in there ‘24 forever in my mind’. I think that line speaks about being gone before your time. The recording process was all done in lockdown and it brought new meaning to the song for me. Like new beginnings and how everything kinda comes in cycles. It’s a moment of clarity in challenging times and holding on to hope when things feel impossibly tough. And I think we all need that moment of clarity right now. The last few months has been a spiral, a domino effect where one thing has led to the other. I think the pandemic has been an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and start again. There’s been so much injustice and we’re seeing people stand together against racism. People want to make a change.”Tweet
