(Radio.com) Country singer Ashley Monroe, also a member of Pistol Annies with Miranda Lambert, will release her third solo LP on July 24, titled The Blade. The release follows 2013's Like a Rose and Pistol Annie's Annie Up.

In anticipation of this new album, Monroe premiered the title track from the collection at People.com. In an interview with the magazine, Monroe revealed the personal nature of the song. "I have been on the receiving end of that pain," she said. "It actually makes me physically hurt when I sing it ' but in a good way."

The idea is that fans also feel the pain in Monroe's vocals when they listen to the new track. "I'm so thankful to the writers of that song," she said. "They talked about my heartbreak in a way that I've never heard. That's hard to do." Read more here.
