Ashton Irwin released his first single "Skinny Skinny" off of his upcoming solo record called "Superbloom" coming out on October 23rd! You may know him as the drummer of 5SOS, but Ashton has been creating music and I can't wait to hear all his new songs. He has always spoken out his thoughts through social media and interviews in a thoughtful way, and I know this album is going to be special.
Ashton shares to his fans:
"I’m ridiculously excited to share this with you, it feels like this record has been over a decade in the making. It brings me the greatest joy of all that I am in a band that allows me to create freely inside and outside of it. I can’t wait for you to hear it.
The first single “Skinny Skinny” is out everywhere tonight. We must fight against a common darkness that shadows our ability to live truthfully, to live without self doubt, and without self destruction and love ourselves for what we are.
When writing this song I thought of myself and many other young peoples’ struggles with body image, particularly body dysmorphia. It’s something I’ve never confronted in a creative form & I’m feeling strong in saying “Skinny Skinny” goes directly to that painful place in my mind."
