As we - and by “we” I mean Bachelor Nation - sits idly by in the interim of Bachelor/Bachelorette seasons, Ashe has stepped up to provide an arguably better Bachelorette for us to enjoy. The second single, “Bachelorette”, off of her (now released as of 4.5.19) EP, Moral of the Story, is the sweet yet somber ballad that we desperately needed.
The song is about the back-and-forth emotions that we feel during a bad break-up. Break-ups are messy- you don’t love each other anymore but you also don’t want to be alone. While you fight those mixed emotions, you don’t know the right thing to say to each other to make it better. Basically, who breaks up with who when you’re both obviously out of love. It’s quite the heartbreaking concept but one that is rarely talked about.
It was perfectly produced by Finneas (the genius brother and co-producer alongside Billie Eilish).
