Lindsay Ell steps back in time for the video for “wAnt me back.”
The video sees the singer transforming into a vintage Hollywood singer, draped in glamorous gowns and fancy accessories, playing a fictionalized version of herself in the duo Eddie and Ell, based on Sonny and Cher.
But underneath the glamour is a woman ready to make her own mark and take the spotlight on her own accord. From a dark, lonely motel room, Eddie watches on a retro TV as Ell makes her solo debut late-night performance of “wAnt me back,” earning her a standing ovation.
“The video captures the story line in which my whole persona changes from an un-confident, held-back woman, to then realizing my own self-power and stepping into it,” Ell describes to video to CMT.
“wAnt me back” was co-written by Lindsay, Kane Brown, Matt McGinn and Lindsay Rimes. It’s the second single off her current album, heart theory.
