This is the title track of singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter's twelfth studio album. "Ashes and Roses speaks to a personal journey that included the end of a marriage, the loss of a parent and a life altering illness," she said. "The songs attempt to describe what I saw, felt and experienced along the way."
Will.I.am, literally dreamt up "I Gotta Feelin'." Said the Black Eyed Pea: "Have you ever had a dream where there's a melody in your dream? I'll wake up out of my sleep and record that! 'I Gotta Feelin' was one of those songs."
