Lindsay Ell Announces New Album, ‘heart theory’

LifeInASong_UK

Lindsay Ell has announced that she will be releasing her new album heart theory on August 14th, produced by legendary producer Dann Huff. Lindsay premiered new single “wAnt me back”, which was co-written with Kane Brown, Matt McGinn & Lindsay Rimes, on BBC Radio 2 earlier this week.

heart theory is an incredibly personal concept album comprised of 12 tracks that journey through each stage of grief: shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, testing, and acceptance. Ell co-wrote 11 of the songs, enlisting help from acclaimed writers & artists including Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line and Brandy Clark among others on the project.

“If theory is the science of music, heart theory is the science of a heart,” Ell says of the record. “I hope this roadmap can be a comfort if you need it, reassurance when you need to remember to believe in yourself or maybe just a glimpse into a memory that’s made you who you are.” 

The concept of heart theory extends to every aspect of the album – its cover art features the spectrum of corresponding colors to each stage, mirroring the music’s movement itself from dark to light, while its track list subtly reveals the album title through use of seemingly random capitalisation.
