Kelsea Ballerini announces that her third album will be titled 'kelsea' and is out on March 20

Kelsea Ballerini has revealed that her third solo album will be titled ‘kelsea’ and that it will be released on March 20. The album will be available to pre-order and pre-save on January 24 via her website.
The album will be Ballerini’s first since she released ‘Unapologetically’ in 2017 and will feature 2019 single homecoming queen?, though little else is known.
Speaking to Maverick for our November/December 2019 issue though, Ballerini told us that the album is definitely her most honest and open, while that she also has some collaborations on it and has also experimented a bit more with her sound.
“It’s definitely the most open, but it’s not a sad record,” Ballerina said. “I was just playing the record for somebody actually and for some reason, I think because homecoming queen? is my whole world right now, I was like, ‘is this record too sad or too slow?’ and as I was playing it, I realised that there was a lot of bops.
“But I think that it’s probably a little bit more of everything. I have a song with horns in it, a song with strings in it, I have two collaborations on it and I’ve never done any of that stuff before. So I think it’s probably got a lot more colour to anything I’ve done before.”
So far, Kelsea Ballerini only has three live dates pencilled in for 2020 – all of which are in the US – though it is expected that will change as and when she releases ‘kelsea’.
In November, Ballerini was nominated for CMA Female Vocalist of the Year for the fifth time in her career, but missed out on this occasion to Kacey Musgraves. She was also inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2019, becoming one of its youngest ever inductees at the age of 25.
