Ash Grunwald is set to release Shout Into the Noise in January 2022.

Shout Into The Noise is Ash Grunwald’s most personal album to-date, and sees him challenge himself, pushing into new territory, crafting some of the finest songs of his career. The album was produced by Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer Lachlan Bostock (Mansionair).

“This album is my resolution to myself that I am releasing any constraints on who I am or what I’m capable of,” Grunwald said, noting that alongside producer Lachlan Bostock, he endeavoured to collaborate more with younger writers and producers in an effort to diversify his sound.

He continued: “I’ve spent much of my career tipping my hat to those who have gone before, maybe it was time to learn from the younger generation and find a new sound that blends the two worlds. An irony that I only realized after the fact is that this is actually my most personal songwriting I’ve ever done. These amazing songwriters unlocked something for me.”

Ash Grunwald is one of Australia’s most successful blues musicians, with six top 50 albums and two APRA Awards. In addition, he’s been nominated for five ARIA Awards and four AIR Awards, he was named Best International Act at the LA Music Critic Awards in 2014.

In 2019, Grunwald signed with Bloodlines Music, the company re-released his back catalogue on vinyl in February 2019. In June 2019, Grunwald released "Whispering Voice" with Kasey Chambers, the lead single from Grunwald's ninth studio album Mojo. Mojo was released in August 2019 and peaked at number 40 on the ARIA Charts. Mojo was produced by Brian Brinkerhoff, Carla Olson and Ash.

Also in August 2019, Grunwald published his first book Surf by Day, Jam by Night. In the book, Grunwald interviews 15 of the world's top surfer-musicians; including Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmore, Jack Johnson, Dave Rastovich, Pete Murray, G. Love and many more. It was published by Pantera Press on 19 August 2019.

In August 2020, Grunwald released his first greatest hits compilation, a 30-track album, titled Anthology 2002–2020.
