Grey Will Fade is the debut album from British singer/songwriter Charlotte Hatherley, released in 2004 whilst still playing guitar in British rock band Ash. She was encouraged to write the album by Ash frontman Tim Wheeler due to the popularity of the song, "Grey Will Fade," originally released as a B-side on Ash's 2001 single "There's a Star." The album reached number 51 in the UK Albums Chart.[5][6]

Three singles were released from the album. "Kim Wilde" was released as a download-only single, followed by "Summer" (2004) and "Bastardo" (2005), which both reached number 31 in the UK Singles Chart.[5][6]
