New Album For Robert Ellis


Robert Ellis has released the 11-song eponymous album, his fourth to date, available now via New West Records.

The new album was self-produced by Ellis at Sugar Hill Studios in his hometown of Houston, Texas with engineer Steve Christensen (Steve Earle) and mixed by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.)

Robert Ellis will be available on LP, CD, and digital download and the album pre-sale will begin at 12 pm EST today via Pledge Music. Ellis has also announced his first headline dates in support of the album. (Please see dates below).

Robert Ellis opens with ‘Perfect Strangers,’ a meditation on what brings people together (and how tenuous that connection can be), and ends with It’s Not OK,’ a raw look at emotional compromise.

Included on the album is the first single, ‘How I Love You.’

Ellis states, “I felt that in the past year, lots of constructs I took for granted were turned on their head.”

He continues, “With this record, I feel like I’ve gotten to where I can use the material of my own life as a jumping-off point. But now I can do different things with that material.”

The new album follows Ellis’ critically acclaimed 2014 release, The Lights From The Chemical Plant. Racking up multiple year-end accolades, NPR selected it as one of their 50 Favorite Albums of 2014, calling him a ‘major sonic storyteller’ and Rolling Stone called it ‘a fully realized masterpiece.’ Esquire declared it one of the best of the year and Buzzfeed hailed him as one of ’25 New Artists You Need In Your Life In 2015.’
