Lindi Ortega has announced details of her forthcoming new album ‘The Comeback Kid’, to be released  on 25th May via Shadowbox Music exclusively licensed via Soundly Music. The Polaris Music Prize and Juno Award-nominated Canadian artist will follow the release with a UK tour in June, including London’s Garage on 14th June.

Lindi has shared a live performance video of first track ‘The Comeback Kid’,  you can watch HERE.

Recorded at Battle Tapes studio in East Nashville, Lindi and producer Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle, Rayland Baxter) scaled back the boot-stomping, throwback country approach that she's known for, instead polishing a set of music that reflects her Mexican lineage.

Ortega wrote roughly half of the twelve tracks solo, and enlisted co-writers Aaron Raitiere, Bruce Wallace and John Paul White (The Civil Wars) for the rest. The result is a three-part concept album reflecting loss, séance, resurrection and freedom.

"Even though I always tried to have a silver lining, whether it's by making my songs tongue-in-cheek, or writing some dark lyrics to happy music, there's always been an element of balancing light and dark on my previous albums," Lindi explains. "But this is a full story, and I want everybody to be able to take something away from it at the end of the day."
