Lindsay Ell has returned with her latest track Hits me, from last year’s personal concept album heart theory.

Hits me is the song which Lindsay Ell credits with sparking her album heart theory.

heart theory marked Lindsay Ell’s sophomore album, debuting in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top Country Albums and Top 5 on the UK Country Album Chart, grabbing strong media attention.  The album includes the previously released single wAnt me back.

Speaking about Hits me, Lindsay Ell explains, “Hits me is the song that started this whole record. It was the first song that I wrote and knew that I’d written something special. The first drum hit is where all the magic starts and I think that most people can relate to the feeling of shock that this song is about. Particularly now, given the circumstance we’ve collectively been living through this past year.”

Hits me sees Lindsay Ell blending country with blues and pop, and drawing strong influences from retro disco.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Lindsay Ell will be performing songs from heart theory for the first time ever in a #LiveRedesigned concert experience on Friday, Feb 12th, 2021. The show will be a charity event, with all net proceeds donated to Crew Nation and other beneficiary organisations soon to be announced. Lindsay’s band and onsite crew will be paid, but all companies involved will be donating their time and equipment, while artist, creatives and management will be donating their time and services. Special guests performing with Ell will be announced in the coming week. Tickets, which will be based on a pay-what-you-can model, are on sale now and available here. The stream will remain live for 48 hours after the premiere event.

You can catch our interview with Lindsay Ell from the greenroom at Manchester Academy before she performed there.
