Ellis 'Born Again'

Linnea Siggelkow AKA: singer/songwriter Ellis, has announced her debut Full-length Born Again, will be released on April 3rd via Fat Possum. The Jake Aron (Snail Mail, Solange, Grizzly Bear) produced LP is the follow-up to Ellis’s debut EP The Fuzz—a self-released, self-produced effort that promptly led to a deal with Fat Possum. “I grew up Christian and was quite devoted to faith up through my late teens, but I started challenging that once I got to university,” says Siggelkow, the daughter of a traveling book salesman and a piano teacher. “Since then I’ve been trying to redefine who I am and where I stand and what I think about these things on my own, and that journey very much played into the songwriting on this record.”

To celebrate the announcement of Born Again, Ellis shares the album’s first single. On the sweetly hazy “Fall Apart,” Ellis takes on a heart-crushing vulnerability, laying bare her longtime struggle with anxiety and its impact on her most precious relationships. She says of the song: “This is really just an honest reflection of my struggle with anxiety and how I can’t hide it from the people closest to me. It’s about the feeling the first time someone you admire sees you in your most vulnerable state, about putting in the work to get better but still having moments of weakness. My anxiety comes over me like a tidal wave, and it feels like I am spiraling out of control. I am finding better and healthier ways to cope, to talk myself down when I can feel myself starting to fall, but it still happens sometimes even though I wish that it didn’t.” Listen to the song and watch it’s gorgeous music video now HERE.

Ellis is already slated to tour with Ratboys later this year, and today she announces more tour dates. All new tour dates will be on-sale this Friday, January 24th. See below to find a show near you, and get your tickets HERE.
