Lindsay Ell to Release New Concept Album, “Heart Theory,” on Aug. 14

Lindsay Ell announced she will release a new concept album, heart theory, on Aug. 14.

The new album, which was produced by Dann Huff, is described in the press release as “an incredibly personal concept album comprised of 12 tracks that journey through each stage of grief: shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, testing and acceptance.”

Lindsay co-penned 11 tracks on the new project with a host of top songwriters, including Brandy Clark, Laura Veltz, Jessie Jo Dillon, Nicole Gaylon and more. The album’s lead single, “wAnt me back,” was penned by Lindsay, Kane Brown, Matt McGinn and Lindsay Rimes.

The track titles have been stylize in lowercase with sporadic capital letters to reflect the spelling of the name of the album, while the album’s title has also been stylized in lowercase.

“If theory is the science of music, heart theory is the science of a heart,” says Lindsay. “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 upcoming album follows the release of Lindsay’s major-label debut album, The Project, in 2017. In 2018, Lindsay released The Continuum Project, a track-by-track cover of John Mayer’s Continuum.
