Lindsay Ell jammed with house band Cleto and the Cletones on Jimmy Kimmel Live on June 20, but she also stepped out front to perform “Waiting on You.” The tune, which Lindsay co-penned with Adam Hambrick and Andrew DeRoberts, is the lead track from her debut EP, Worth the Wait. Lindsay also revealed her first full-length album, The Project, will drop in August.
“It is the first song that started this whole project because when we originally started talking with Kristian Bush to produce my whole record, ‘Waiting on You’ was the song that all of us were like, ‘You know what, there’s something to this,’” Lindsay said in April. “As an artist, I came to town really trying to find what I wanted to sound like. I think it took me years of doing the wrong thing to finally find the right thing. ‘Waiting on You’ is the first song where I could honestly by like, ‘That’s me.’ If I was given three minutes with somebody whose never heard my name before, to really hear what’s going on in my heart and hear what I sound like, ‘Waiting on You’ would be it.”
