– Lindsay Ell announced she will release her version of John Mayer's "Continuum" album on May 25 through Broken Bow Records.
Ell's "The Continuum Project," co-produced and co-engineered by Ell, began as a homework assignment from producer Kristian Bush (Sugarland) in preparation to record her debut album.
Ell was given two weeks to reimagine her all-time favorite record, recording every single instrument and singing every part alone in her studio. The process led her to release her debut, "The Project."
Ell 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.'"
Ell's current single, "Criminal," is on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and climbing. She is on a song, "Horses," on Keith Urban's "Graffiti U" CD, which came out last Friday. She is going to tour with him later this year along with Sugarland.
