One of modern country's most exciting prodigies, Hannah Ellis, has delighted fans by announcing her debut album, That Girl, with the project set to drop on January 12th 2024.
Thankfully, though, we won't have to wait until then before we can get a preview of the highly anticipated project. Ellis has made her brand new single, ‘Too Much and Not Enough’, available immediately, alongside the previously released ‘Country Can’, ‘Us’, ‘Wine Country’, ‘Someone Else's Heartbreak’ and ‘Karma On The Rocks’.
The enchanting new single, ‘Too Much and Not Enough’, showcases the lyrical dexterity and emotional gravitas that Hannah Ellis so deftly infuses into much of her music.
The song, co-written by Ellis with Emily Weisband and Tofer Brown, finds the protagonist struggling to wade through her insecurities as she tussles with a plethora of internal conflicts.
It's a stellar example of the witty country songwriting and intricacy that pervades the likes of ‘Someone Else's Heartbreak’, ‘Wine Country’ and ‘Karma On The Rocks’.
Although ‘Too Much and Not Enough’ is a beautifully stripped-back, introspective offering, Hannah Ellis has already outlined to fans that That Girl will feature a thrilling blend of drawn-in, evocative ballads and fiery, raucous Friday-night anthems, epitomised on the upcoming record's opening track, ‘Country Can’.
Despite That Girl serving as the up-and-coming Kentucky native's debut album, Hannah Ellis has already established herself as one of the go-to songwriters in Music City, with writing credits for the likes of Carly Pearce, Chris Tomlin and more.
Over the past few months, the buzz surrounding Hannah Ellis has built to a crescendo, with the former The Voice contestant making her Grand Ole Opry debut on September 28.
With Ellis having spent the Fall supporting Carly Pearce on her blockbuster Country Music Made Me Do It tour, the stage is set for the singer-songwriter's new album, That Girl, with fans undoubtedly hoping they'll get another single or two ahead of the release date.
