Summer 2004 is some kind of madness for Charlotte Hatherley, Ash guitarist, indie-rock icon and current queen-of-the-downloads!

Not only touring the current Ash album Meltdown non-stop through Europe, Australia and Japan, she's also releasing her latest solo single. Available on 09 August 2004, in advance of her debut solo long-player Grey Will Fade, it's appropriately titled Summer.

Summertime is encapsulated perfectly within the mood of this record with its up-tempo bursts of frenetic power-pop, coupled with the driving production of American legend Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart, Frank Black) and the seasonally inspired lyrics. The single will be available on both CD and 7" vinyl formats, both backed with two new and otherwise unavailable B-sides, Commodore and S.M.U.T.

Summer is the perfect introduction to what Charlotte's debut solo album Grey Will Fade is all about - bright and breezy with a deliciously catchy chorus it showcases her unique gift for a killer tune. Opening track (and previous download only single) Kim Wilde is almost as good, heralding the arrival of this awesome debut with gusto - the track drew over 8,400 downloads since its release on her website earlier this year. Other stand-out tracks on the album are the wonderfully bitchy Bastardo, the darkly Pixie-esque Stop, the introspectively atmospheric Where I'm Calling From, Why You Wanna? with its soaring harmonies, plus title track and album closer Grey Will Fade. There are of course others, Charlotte's genius songwriting capabilities and seemingly faultless delivery ensure that the album is jammed to the rafters with perfect moments from start to finish.

The full album track-listing is as follows:

01. Kim Wilde
02. Rescue Plan
03. Paragon
04. Summer
05. Down
06. Stop
07. Where I'm Calling From
08. Why You Wanna?
09. Bastardo
10. Grey Will Fade 

Summer is released through Double Dragon Music on 09 August 2004. Charlotte Hatherley's debut solo album Grey Will Fade follows on 16 August.
