Singer-songwriter Lindsay Lou detailed a new album, Queen Of Time, due out via her new label Kill Rock Stars Nashville on September 29. Lindsay previewed Queen Of Time with a trippy music video for the title track.

Queen Of Time is Lindsay Lou’s first full-length album since 2018’s Southland. She released a four-track EP, thought you knew, in 2022 which saw a guest spot from Billy Strings who returns to add guitar on Queen Of Time along with renowned dobro player Jerry Douglas. Dave O’Donnell (James Taylor, Sheryl Crow, Heart) handled production duties on Queen Of Time’s 11 tracks.

The new record sees Lindsay processing a number of challenging events in her life over the past few years including the death of her grandmother, the end of her marriage and the COVID-19 pandemic. Part of her healing saw Lindsay Lou taking part in a hallucinogenic ritual that led to an epiphany. “I saw a literal manifestation of the sacred feminine,” Lindsay noted of the experience, “and had this profound sense that I was meant to embody it.”

“It started with my grandma,” Lindsay continued “She was the unattainable woman in a way. She had 12 kids and ran homeless shelters and was always taking people in. She felt that her calling was to be a mother to everyone – this communal caregiver – but it also meant that in belonging to everyone, she also belonged to no one. I realized that this is the catch-22 of anyone who is a woman unto herself. Women, first and foremost, belong to themselves, so nobody can really have them; but, there’s also this element of self-sacrificing and giving to the idea of the feminine.”

Lindsay Lou previewed Queen Of Time with the title track, which she also detailed:

“I wrote ‘Queen of Time’ back in 2016, when thinking about Absalom, the caterpillar who challenges Alice to claim who she is. Its title is ironic to me; time management is not my forte. But ultimately, it’s about the duality of human experience. Sometimes you feel like the social butterfly and sometimes you feel like the caterpillar who needs to cocoon. Sometimes you feel like the queen of time, and sometimes you feel like a wishing well. The truth is you’re always both and all of it at once. It can feel overwhelming, but self-knowledge is the ultimate power.”

“Queen Of Time” features Lindsay Lou on guitar and vocals along with Alex Bice on drums, PJ George III on bass and Anthony da Costa on electric guitar. Watch the music video for “Queen Of Time” shot and directed by Sawyer Gieseke and Sawyer Harris below:
