Listen to the Title Track From Kelsea Ballerini’s Upcoming Album, “Unapologetically” + Performance on “Ellen”

Kelsea Ballerini will release her upcoming sophomore album, Unapologetically, on Nov. 3.

The new album features 12 songs that Kelsea wrote or co-wrote, including the album’s title track, which she co-penned with Forest Glen Whitehead and Hillary Lindsay

“I have never really written a proper love song until ‘Unapologetically,’” said Kelsea. “I wrote this three weeks after meeting Morgan Evans. Album titles, I obsess over them, because I really think that not only do they capture the 12 songs you put on the record, but they capture the whole chapter of what that record will entail. So The First Time was perfect because it was the first time I got to do everything. It wasn’t just the title of the record, it was the title of that whole chapter of my life. When I was writing for [Unapologetically], and when I was picking the songs and when I was just deciding who I want to be. I was like, ‘I just want to be me,’ whoever that is, like, unapologetically this. So when I wrote this song, I feel like that’s what this is, it’s every corner of who I am—happy, sad, good, bad. That’s why I picked it as the album title.”

Listen to “Unapologetically” below, as well as Kelsea’s performance of the tune on Ellen on Sept. 27.
