Kelsea Ballerini Adds “Co-Producer” to Her Résumé for New Album: “I Trust Myself a Lot More”

Kelsea Ballerini will release her third studio album, Kelsea, on March 20.

In addition to penning every track on the upcoming project—much like her 2015 debut album, The First Time, and 2017 sophomore album, Unapologetically—Kelsea serves as the co-producer on her new album. Kelsea marks the first time Kelsea has assumed the role of co-producer on one of her albums.

“This is the first album that I’ve gotten to co-produce,” says Kelsea to Nash Country Daily. “I’ve written everything for all of my albums, but I really dug in a little bit more as a songwriter on this one. I’m really proud of it.

“I learned a lot [as co-producer]. I think on my first two albums, I was more of a student. I think I was learning more about musicality and being a musician. I hadn’t even played a full band show when I made my first album, so I think I had a lot to learn. But now, I trust myself a lot more. I’m more invested in this album. Not only did I write it all, but I was part of bringing it to life in the studio, too, which is the full journey of the songs.”

In the lead up to the album’s release, Kelsea has already shared a few tracks, including lead single “Homecoming Queen,” “Club” and “LA,” which you can listen to below.
