Ash's unlimited alphabet Ash singer Tim Wheeler

Ash worried their A-Z singles collection could look "desperate".

The 'Burn Baby Burn' singers have shunned the traditional album format in order to release one single a fortnight, categorised by a different letter of the alphabet.

However the group decided not to make the song titles begin with a different letter as they thought it would be too restrictive.

Frontman Tim Wheeler said: "No, there isn't a different letter for each track. We didn't want to limit ourselves when writing the songs, it was just a loose concept, it ties the artwork together. But it would have been fun - or a bit desperate."

The group have just released single N - which is entitled 'Dare To Dream' - and despite being over halfway through the series, wish they could extend it further.

Tim added to Absolute Radio DJ Geoff Lloyd: "It's been really rewarding, I'd like to keep going with it. Things come and go so quickly, but with this we're around for a whole year and it's a lot more interactive and current.

"It's really fun and each track gets a lot more scrutiny than it would just as an album track, which can get a bit lost."
