Monroe is "Paying Attention"

Friday, March 9, 2018 – Ashley Monroe, who drops "Sparrow" on April 20, released the video for "Paying Attention" today. The song features a traditional country sound vocally with sections of strings interspersed.

Dave Cobb produced the 12-song collection recorded in Nashville's RCA Studio A. Monroe, featured as a co-writer on each track, has rolled out several songs from the release, including the single "Hands on You."

"I knew I wanted to work with Dave," Monroe said. "All of his records are consistently awesome and classic, timeless, old and new all in one." Together, they shared their favorite records and music moments, like early Elton John LPs and Glenn Campbell's "Wichita Lineman," in preparing for "Sparrow."

Monroe will have a record release show at Rough Trade NYC in Brooklyn on April 24.
