Lindsay Ell has just announced her sophomore album Heart Theory will be released on August 14.

Lindsay says of the record, “If theory is the science of music, heart theory is the science of a heart. 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.”

Heart Theory is a 12-song concept album; per her press release, the album tracks a “journey through each stage of grief: shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, testing, and acceptance.” Ell co-wrote 11 of the songs, working with Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line and Brandy Clark among others on the project.

Due to quarantine, Ell completed Heart Theory with legendary producer Dann Huff remotely; they worked together, but from separate locations.

The Project – Ell’s first full-length album – debuted at No. 1 on the Country Album Sales Chart and was named Billboard’s Best Country Album of 2017.
