Lindsay Ell is a Canadian country songstress that has been on the rise since her debut The Project. She celebrated her success with single “Criminal” off that record and her recent hit with “What Happens In A Small Town” with Brantley Gilbert. Earlier this week, the singer announced her second full-length record slated for release later this summer. Just hours after this announcement, Ell dropped her new single “wAnt me back” following heartbreaker realization “I Don’t Love You” a few months prior.
“wAnt me back,” written alongside Kane Brown, Matt McGinn, and Lindsay Rimes is a confident track of Ell’s straight from the heels of a breakup. The track takes place in the anger period of a breakup, and it shows the country singer + songwriter knows what she is worth. She sings: “If I were you, I’d miss my kiss // I’d miss me keeping you up all night // If I were you, I know that losing me // Would make me lose my mind // You ain’t gonna find nobody like me // I’m the best you ever had // and I’m always gonna be // So if I were you if I were you/ I’d want me back too.”
In coordination with her latest single release, Ell also announced her sophomore album, heart theory, sharing in an Instagram post, “it’s been a long time coming working on LE2, but I am so excited to announce that my sophomore album heart theory is available now for pre-order!! Along with pre-ordering the album, you will be able to hear my next single “wAnt me back”. I wrote this song with kanebrown_music, @matthewmcginn, & @lindsayrimes. It’s all about stepping into your own power. Let me know what you think below!! ”
heart theory combats the seven stages of grief: shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, testing, and acceptance. It’s produced by Dan Huff and will be released on August 14th.
