On social media on Aug. 5, Kelsea Ballerini revealed the cover art for her upcoming sophomore album, Unapologetically, which will drop on Nov. 3. The cover depicts Kelsea cloaked in a beaded dress while seated in a leather chair and surrounded by flowers.
“[Unapologetically] is about years 21 through 23,” says Kelsea to Nash Country Daily. It really is. It starts with a gross breakup that I had. It talks about the darkness of that. I haven’t really . . . ‘Peter Pan’ is like as much of a breakup as I went into on the first record, because that’s really the only feeling of a breakup that I’d had at that point. This one definitely gets darker than that. But then it takes you through the darkness of that, the bounce back from that, into just growing up and finding who I am as a young girl. New insecurities that I have, all of that, into meeting [fiancé] Morgan [Evans] and getting engaged. It talks about all of it.”
Kelsea will reveal the album’s track listing on the Swarm app later this week.
