Hyslop speaks of his inspiration for “Ash and Stone”, “I do a lot of solo touring and, for someone who can feel pretty low sometimes, that can be hard to do. I started working on this song on tour when I’d start to feel down or worried or anxious, as a way of writing myself some hope. It’s my own way of telling myself to hang in there and to keep moving forward“.
