After being unusually quiet following his hospital recovery, larger-than-life DJ Ashley Wallbridge has released a new single and it is serious listening material. World For You (feat. Sarah de Warren) is the first song from his upcoming independent album Ready For Life; which he’s been crafting for over a year and is finally able to release thanks to a crowdfunding home run on Kickstarter.
The benchmark was already set high thanks to previous uplifter Still Alive (feat. Evan Henzi), the heartfelt song Ashley wrote in hospital while fighting bacterial meningitis. Comments flooded in from listeners worldwide who resonated with its inspiring message. No doubt World For You’s lyrics will touch a similar nerve for all of us who are weary of lockdowns and being unable to see loved ones.

Despite the challenges of social distancing, Ashley has hit the bullseye with a mesmerizing music video put together with Sarah de Warren at Brooklands Studio (London). The song’s spirit really shines through in their energetic, production-heavy performance, which sees them surrounded by lights and iconic visuals from around the world.
Genre titans Armin van Buuren, Gareth Emery and more have already unleashed the track with the Dutchman premiering it on global A State of Trance radio show; and Emery surprising fans at his sold-out Laserface drive-in events.
It’s a busy year ahead for Ashley, with no less than six new singles coming out before his new album drops, plus a series of mysterious team-ups with new collaborators previously unseen in dance music. All in aid of his goal to raise awareness for Mental Health through the power of music.
