One man pop-band, Robert DeLong, has teamed up with American singer and songwriter, Ashe. The pair have dropped their new single, Better In Collage.
The catchy pop-track contrasts DeLong’s autotune heavy vocals with Ashe’s delicate, vintage vocal quality. Both DeLong and Ashe had come out of long term relationships when they began writing the track, driving the conceptual basis of the song.
Of the collaboration, Robert shared, “Ashe and I started writing about two weeks after I had just ended a 10 year relationship. As post-break-up conversations often do, this led to us commiserating over the recent end of both of our long-term partnerships that began as college-era romances. The process was a lovely and fluid meeting of the minds. The song was a joy to write and produce, and ended up being quite special because of it.”
Ashe added, “We wrote ‘Better in College’ about a guy I crushed on back in school who is ironically now a good friend of both of ours. To Rob, love ya. Guy from college, you know who you are.”
