Lindsay Ell will release a new album but it's not at all what you would expect. She is releasing her own version of John Mayer's Continuum album on May 25th. The project was co-produced and co-engineered by Lindsay and will be available at all digital retailers and streaming services.
The album was actually a homework assignment from Sugarland's Kristian Bush, who produced her latest album, The Project. In preparation to record her debut album, Lindsay was given two weeks to reimagine her all-time favorite desert island record, recording every single instrument and singing every part alone in her studio. The process led her to emerge with a renewed creative discovery and vision for how she plays, writes and records her own music.
Lindsay said, “Recording Continuum was the thing that started it all. Kristian taught me some of the most valuable lessons as my producer from this ‘homework’ assignment. He gave me three rules: I needed to play all the instruments myself, I needed to record it alone in my studio, and I had two weeks. Through it all, I remembered all the things I first loved about making music. I can’t wait for my fans to hear the music that helped shaped ‘Criminal’ and The Project!”
Lindsay just wrapped a year-long run on Brad Paisley’s Weekend Warrior World tour. She joins Sugarland’s Still the Same tour in July ahead of supporting select dates of Keith Urban’s Graffiti U World tour this fall.
