Maren said, “I cannot imagine releasing an album the week the world shut down (referring to Kelsea’s releasing her Kelsea album in February 2020) @kelseaballerini you continue to exemplify grace and turned an even greater one all in quarantine.”
Kelsea’s new Ballerini album is the same songs on her Kelsea album rerecorded with different emotions.
Ballerini herself posted to Instagram at midnight (9//11), “IT’S OUT // exhaling in blissful contentment that this album’s journey now feels complete. and also like it’s just starting. so grateful for those of you who championed ‘kelsea’ these last few months, and grateful for those of you that will discover these songs for the first time or differently now through ‘ballerini’. this project has been my silver lining these last few months- it’s kept my creativity alive and my heart so happy. I hope you hear it, I hope you love it like I loved making it.”
