TOP SHELF

Take a unique journey through the seven stages of grief with Lindsay Ell as she puts forward her highly anticipated sophomore album, “heart theory,” arriving on August 14th! The album’s pre-order launches with the track “wAnt me back” which was co-written with Kane Brown, Matt McGinn & Lindsay Rimes! 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. She 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. 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 tracklist subtly reveals the album title through use of seemingly random capitalization. Due to quarantine, Lindsay completed heart theory with legendary producer Dann Huff from a distance and two different locations.
