Kelsea Ballerini released a new song called “la” that she wrote in the last year and as she shares, it’s one of the most personal songs she’s ever written.
She wrote on Instagram early this morning (1/24), “I wrote this song alone on a bathroom floor in Los Angeles last year feeling equal parts like somebody and like nobody, surrounded and completely alone, inspired and terrified, on top of the world and filled to the brim with anxiety. I was in between tour dates and left my guitar on the bus that particular week, so it came out as a stream of consciousness that fell into the form of a poem. As soon as I got to the bus a few days later it became this. It’s the most vulnerable thing I’ve publicly shared. It’s not cool to talk about not feeling cool. But it’s honest. And I’m really proud of every word of it. “la” is out NOW. ”
