Asher Preston, AKA CC Honeymoon, shares new single 'Make It Right'

London's CC Honeymoon - the moniker of Asher Preston - last featured on these pages in late 2017 with the release of 'In The Night', which called back to the kind of electroclash that you might have heard at famed London club night Trash.

Now Preston is back with a new single, titled 'Make It Right', which is set for release tomorrow. You can hear the track above. Preston explains that the track is written about a break-up, from the point of view of the person being left, "asking for one more night with their partner thinking they would get closure and potentially stop them from leaving."

He continues: "I wrote and recorded this song in my bedroom over the winter, whilst I went through a period of being a bit of a hermit not wanting to go out or socialise, I was quite 'in my own head' during this time and think that spills into this track.

"I wanted to write a song about how I think everyone internalises their emotions a lot when they're in a relationship, obsessing over how the other person feels, are they keen on me, do they love me? Do they have doubts? Are they cheating? Constantly second guessing the partner due to our own insecurities. When in reality everything could be fine and they're happy, it could just be you that has the problem."

Following on from the release of the new track, he has a number of UK tour dates lined up across April and May, taking in shows at Leeds' Nation of Shop Keepers (April 24), Test Pressing festival in London (April 27) and at Brighton's The Great Escape (May 11).
