Ash’s frontman Tim Wheeler will release his solo album in November 2014.
Tim Wheeler, Northern Irish alternative rock band Ash’s frontman, will be launching his solo career with the release of his debut album ‘Lost Domain’ via Sony RED on November 3, 2014. The album will include tracks about his late father’s battle with Alzhiemer’s disease and its impact on his family before he passed away three years ago.
For Wheeler, the album is a heartfelt response to the loss of his father and his personal troubles. The rockstar reportedly found complete support from his bandmates, bassist Mark Hamilton and drummer Rick McMurray, in penning down his whole album.
‘Lost Domain’ was recorded in Ash’s New York studio by both Wheeler and producer Claudius Mittendorfer. The album also features guest artists such as ex-Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows, Neon Indian and the London Metropolitan Orchestra. As a bonus, the rockstar has also included a sample of his father playing the piano.
Wheeler intends to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society by donating 10 percent of all proceeds from the forthcoming album sales to the organization.
Ash was formed in Downpatrick in 1992 by Wheeler, Hamilton and McMurray. The vocalist and guitarist has written almost all of their best known songs such as Oh Yeah, Shining Light, Kung Fu and Goldfinger. The band has had one silver, two gold and two platinum-selling albums in the UK, along with 18 songs that fall in top 40 of the UK Singles Chart.
